Spence tells fans what he will bring in first words as a Spurs player


N

ew Tottenham signing Djed Spence has promised to bring “excitement, skill and speed” after becoming the club’s sixth summer recruit.

The right-back has joined on a five-year deal and will compete with Matt Doherty, Emerson Royal and potentially Lucas Moura in Antonio Conte’s wing-back position.

Spence’s Spurs move caps an impressive rise to prominence for the youngster, and he has now told his new fans what they can expect.

“I bring excitement, skill, speed, I just want to excite the fans,” he told SpursTV.

The 21-year-old came through Fulham’s academy before he moved to Middlesbrough in 2018 but saw his time on Teesside disrupted by the club’s lack of managerial stability.

Spence was signed by Boro during Tony Pulis’ tenure but earned his first consistent run under the stewardship of ex-Tottenham centre-back Jonathan Woodgate, who would be sacked after a year in the summer of 2020.

Next manager Neil Warnock used the versatile defender regularly during the 2020-21 campaign but let him move on and sign for Forest on a temporary basis last season.

Spence’s form at the City Ground earned him England Under-21 recognition in March and he made 46 appearances, scoring three goals to help his loan club go up via the Sky Bet Championship play-offs in May.
