Tottenham have completed the signing of Argentinian defender Federico Fazio from Primera Division outfit Sevilla
Fazio spent seven seasons in Seville, winning the Copa del Rey, the UEFA Super Cup, the Spanish Super Cup and last season's Europa League, but he clearly could not hide his delight at moving to the Barclays Premier League.
"I'm really happy to be here at this club, this great club with very good players," he told Spurs' official Twitter account. "I'm really happy to be here.
"I come to Tottenham because I think it's a very good team, a very good club, very good fans.
"I know Spurs is an historic club in this country and league. This is a great club and I'm very happy to be here."
Fazio began his career in his native Argentina playing for Ferro Carril Oeste and earning a move to Spain in 2007.
He initially played for Sevilla B but broke into the first-team in the 2007/08 season and eventually went on to make 194 appearances for the club.
