Fernando Llorente signs for Tottenham from Swansea

It looked for so long that Fernando Llorente would join Chelsea but it is Tottenham who have won his signature.

The Spanish striker and World Cup winner is expected to cost the club around £15m on a deal until 2019.

Llorente will, like any professional, want to start as often as possible but barring an injury to Harry Kane his role will surely be as an impact sub.

Llorente’s arrival means an almost certain exit for Vincent Janssen – who has been reportedly been the subject of a £23m bid from WBA – and Swansea will look to replace him with Wilfred Bony.

Bony, of course, left the Welsh club for Manchester City in 2015 but has struggled to make an impact at the Etihad.

Llorente joined Swansea in August 2016 and scored 15 goals as the club managed to avoid relegation to the Championship.
