So that means that Gylfi Sigurdsson has the pleasure of being the first signing of Andre Villas-Boas’s Tottenham reign. The North London club have beaten a number of interested parties to land the 22 year old Icelandic midfielder who last term impressed many during a loan spell at Swansea City.
The former Reading man had been set to sign a permanent deal with the Swans but once Brendan Rodgers left the Liberty Stadium for Liverpool the attacking midfielder opted to re-consider his options. Indeed a move to Anfield was mooted but the youngster has instead decided to move to Tottenham.
Andre Villas-Boas was officially announced as the successor to Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane yesterday.
