Tottenham Hotspur FC have confirmed and completed the signing of forward Arnaut Danjuma on loan from for the rest of the 2022–23 season.

Danjuma has signed short-term loan agreement with the North club after Spurs sensationally outbid Everton to sign the Dutch international at the last minute. Without buy option, the 25-year-old joins Antonio Conte’s squad for the rest of the current campaign.

Spurs have released an official statement confirming the deal for Danjuma, which reads:

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal until the end of the 2022/23 season, subject to international clearance.”

Antonio Conte has added the former Bournemouth player to the team because the attacking ranks sorely need further reinforcements.

Despite busy summer transfer window where that was goal for the season ahead, Spurs have occasionally battled with depth during the season.

Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski, and Lucas Moura’s injuries haven’t benefited the team, and Son Heung-Min hasn’t been playing well.

There will be hopes that Danjuma can add that quality in depth after completing his switch to north London, with possible debut against Preston in the FA Cup this weekend on the cards.

However, for the Dutch international, who was on the verge of securing transfer to another Premier League club, things could have turned out quite differently.

That’s because reports stated that deal to join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season was all but completed, having held talks with the current crisis club. medical was said to have been finalised, with signatures all in place and media duties completed too.

The Toffees were grappling with Frank Lampard’s departure as manager after terrible stretch of results when the deal collapsed as Spurs spotted an opportunity.

It’s one of the unexpected U-turns in the transfer market, and it’s unclear the club will benefit the most from the signing.

Villarreal have confirmed that there is an option to buy in the deal too. Writing in their own statement: “Villarreal CF and Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement for the loan of Arnaut Danjuma. The Dutch forward will play for the club until the end of the current 2022/23 season. The loan agreement includes purchase option.”
