The player shot to fame earlier this year when he was named as one of the fastest dribblers in the game. At the time, it was thought that Chelsea were his likely destination this summer, but ESPN report that he has signed for Tigres for £10 million instead.

Damm is one of the fastest players on FIFA 17.

Tigres, the richest club in Mexico, have been making waves in the transfer market this summer. Two weeks ago they beat West Ham to the signing of Marseilles striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

They finished in first place in the regular season in the Clausura, but lost to eventual champions Santos Laguna in the quarter finals of the playoffs as a gruelling Copa Libertadores travel schedule took its toll.

They are due to play in the semi finals of the Copa Libertadores against Internacional in a fortnight. They could become the first Mexican side to win the trophy.
