Tottenham unveil Danjuma who joined on loan from Villarreal

Tottenham Hotspur have signed winger Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Spanish club Villarreal until the end of the season, the Premier League team said on Wednesday, making him their first signing of the January transfer window.

He scored six goals in 17 matches in all competitions for Villarreal this season, taking his overall total for the LaLiga side to 22 goals in 51 games.

The 25-year-old has experience of playing in England, having been with Bournemouth for two years before he moved to Villarreal.

Danjuma was first called up to the Netherlands national team in October 2018 and earned a recall last season.

He currently has two goals in six international appearances.

British media reported that relegation-threatened Everton were close to signing Danjuma before fifth-placed Tottenham roped him in.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, he began his career as a youngster in the Netherlands with TOP Oss and PSV before joining NEC Nijmegen in 2016.


After scoring 14 goals in 46 senior appearances over two seasons for NEC, he joined Belgian side Club Brugge ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, swiftly helping them lift the Belgian Super Cup and going on to score six goals in 25 games for them, including two appearances in the UEFA Champions League.
