Hojbjerg’s first words
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg says he can see himself at Spurs for the long-term after sealing a move to north London.
The midfielder has completed his move to Spurs from Southampton having long been linked with the club.
He says part of the reason for the move was due to the lure of being at Spurs for the long-term.
The Dane said: “What was very important for me is that I wanted to play in a club where I could see myself for many years, and Tottenham was just the one.
“I’m very proud, happy, excited. There is a fantastic future ahead for the club and I wanted so much to be a part of that.”
Where can Winks play?
The signing of Hojbjerg has added extra competition to an already strong central midfield for Spurs.
It means questions will likely be asked over where Harry Winks can slot into the starting XI.
Winks previously took up the holding role that Hojbjerg will likely fill, despite it not being his natural position.
So where can he feature now?
It will likely depend on how Jose Mourinho lines up and it likely means Winks is not an automatic first-choice any more. Read more on how Winks could fit into Spurs’ starting line-up.
