London (AFP) – Brazil winger Lucas Moura has joined Tottenham Hotspur from Paris Saint-Germain on a contract until 2023, the English Premier League club announced on Wednesday’s transfer deadline day.
The 25-year-old — capped 34 times — expressed his sadness to French sports daily L’Equipe earlier this week at being frozen out by PSG, with his compatriot Neymar’s arrival from Barcelona having seen him fall down the pecking order.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of @LucasMoura7 from Paris Saint-Germain!,” said a statement on Tottenham’s Twitter feed.
“Lucas has signed a contract until 2023 and will wear the number 27 shirt.”
No fee has been disclosed by Spurs but reports in the British press this week said the London club had made a bid of £25 million ($35.4m, 28.5m euros) for Lucas.
His arrival is particularly beneficial to Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, with Lucas eligible to play in the Champions League, having not appeared for PSG in Europe’s elite club competition this season.
