Gedson Fernandes has completed his 18-month loan move to Tottenham.

The Portuguese playmaker is Jose Mourinho’s first signing at Spurs as the Special One turns to his homeland for reinforcements. Fernandes, 21, had fallen out of favour at Benfica this season and there is a £45million option to buy included in his contract.
After signing his contract, he said: “Every player wants to play in the Premier League and that is a big motivation for me – it’s a dream come true. I know the squad because I’ve watched some games, I know Sissoko and Eric Dier because he played in Portugal. All young players want to work with Jose Mourinho because he’s one of the best – it’s fantastic.”

Fernandes already has family in London after they moved from Portugal in search of work. And he cites former Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as one of his heroes. He added: “I look up to Cristiano (Ronaldo), he’s Portuguese and he’s breaking all the records, I will try to follow his example.”
Gedson, who will wear No30, has two Portugal caps and despite failing to nail down a first-team spot at Benfica is being tipped for greatness. He will hope to make an immediate impact at Spurs, who are struggling to keep pace with their top-four rivals after winning just one of their last five league games. The wonderkid did play a significant role as his side won the Primeira Liga in 2019.Photo Credit: Getty
