Tottenham have officially confirmed the signing of defender Cristian Romero from Atalanta.

The 23-year-old spent just one year on loan at the Serie A side from Juventus before Tottenham made their move, with Atalanta taking up their €16million (£13.5million) option to buy the defender before sealing a deal with Spurs.

Romero all-but confirmed the move already by saying goodbye to Atalanta with an emotional statement published on his official Instagram account.

He wrote: “Unfortunately the day has come that I never thought could come so soon. I say unfortunately because in Atalanta I found more than just a club, but a real family with which I was able to grow and fulfil some of my dreams as a child such as playing and winning with my national team.

“I thank the Percassi family who believed in me more than anyone a year ago, all my teammates, the coach, all the staff and managers. But above all I want to greet the Bergamo fans because they made me feel at home and welcomed me as one of them.
