The right-back has signed a five-year contract with the club. Meanwhile, Kieran Trippier has pulled out of England’s upcoming fixtures with an injury.
Elsewhere, Fernando Llorente is close to becoming a Spurs player, although Chelsea are still keen on hijacking the deal. As a result, Vincent Janssen could join Swansea on loan.

There are also plenty of murmurings about Everton midfielder Ross Barkley. Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal are apparently keen. Reports suggest he would prefer a move to Spurs but a deal isn’t thought to be close.
