In his first interview as a Tottenham player, Destiny Udogie has admitted that he is honoured to sign for such a big club.
Spurs officially confirmed the signing of Udogie from Udinese on Tuesday and revealed that the youngster would be returning to the Serie A club on loan for the 2022/23 season.
According to reports, Tottenham will pay an initial £15m to the Italian club for the left-back, with the fee potentially rising to £18m including add-ons (Football.London’s Alasdair Gold).
Udogie said in his first interview with Spurs TV that he is excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League and working with a coach of the calibre of Antonio Conte.
The 19-year-old added that he wants to continue developing as a player this season back at Udinese before returning to Spurs in a year’s time.
