Tottenham have completed the £25m signing of winger Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain on a five-and-a-half-year deal.
Moura is Tottenham's first winter transfer window signing since 2015 when they bought Dele Alli from MK Dons and becomes the second PSG player to arrive at the club this season after Serge Aurier's summer move.
The Brazilian arrived in London via Eurostar on Monday night and was taken to the Spurs base in Enfield on Tuesday for a medical.
That medical was subsequently completed on Wednesday morning before the finalisation of personal terms.
"I'm so, so happy," Moura told Spurs' official website. "It's a new chapter in my life, a new challenge for me.
"I've joined a big club with big players and I look forward to playing and helping the team.
"I can play in the Champions League, which is a big objective for me and to make new friends is always a pleasure.
"I will give my best for this club. I think we have a lot of quality and I think we can win big things."
Moura has not started a match for PSG this season, appearing in only six games in all competitions totalling just 80 minutes of action, and will be eligible to play for Spurs in the Champions League.
The 25-year-old was also of interest to Napoli, Sevilla, Valencia and a club in China, but favoured a move to Spurs and the Premier League.
Moura signed for PSG in January 2013 for £31.8m from Sao Paulo and has made over 150 appearances for the club, winning four Ligue 1 titles and three Coupe de France trophies.
Moura has been capped 34 times for Brazil and won the 2013 Confederations Cup and a silver medal at the London Olympics in 2012.
