With the winter transfer window now closed, we round-up all of Tottenham's done deals.
Tottenham have signed right-back Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon on loan until the end of the season with an obligation to buy for £39m this summer.
Spurs have paid an initial loan fee of around £5m to sign the 23-year-old on Deadline Day after weeks of protracted negotiations.
The Spaniard, who has been a key performer for Sporting this season having scored three goals and provided 11 assists in 26 appearances in all competitions, will wear the number 23 shirt at Spurs.
Sky Sports' Nick Wright:
Antonio Conte's preferred 3-4-2-1 system requires effective wing-backs and while Ivan Perisic has strengthened their left side, their right has been neglected. Until now.
Pedro Porro arrives at Spurs having emerged as one of the most exciting young players in Europe in the position with Sporting Lisbon, scoring nine goals and providing 13 assists in 67 Primeira Liga appearances since joining from Girona in 2019.
He helped the Portuguese side win a league and cup double in his first season at the club and that success allowed him to test himself against Champions League opposition, including Spurs this season, and Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City last term.
He embraced that challenge, proving his ability to excel at the highest level both in and out of possession, but it is his attacking threat which is key to his appeal to Conte and Spurs.
So far this season, Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty have managed only two goals and one assist between them in a combined total of 28 Premier League appearances.
The Brazilian has been first choice for most of the campaign and a deeper look at the numbers shows even more starkly the contrast between his output and Porro's.
Porro has created seven times as many chances per 90 minutes than Emerson and his numbers for assists, crosses, shots and successful dribbles are considerably higher too. He represents a significant upgrade for Spurs in a crucial position.
Tottenham completed the loan signing of Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma - just days after he nearly joined Everton.
Sky Sports News reported that Danjuma would join Everton, however, in a dramatic twist, the Netherlands international suddenly travelled to London to hold talks with Spurs, and the 25-year-old finalised his move to Antonio Conte's side.
Tottenham have the option to buy Danjuma once his initial loan finishes at the end of the season.
Porro's arrival led to the departures of fellow right-backs Matt Doherty and Djed Spence on Deadline Day, with the former moving permanently while the latter has exited on loan.
Doherty joined Atletico Madrid on a free transfer after his Spurs contract was mutually terminated to allow him to join the Spanish club until the end of the season.
Doherty's departure was set to be a loan but that would have taken Tottenham up to nine players out on loan and FIFA's limit is eight.
Spence became their eighth player on loan after he moved to French side Rennes on a deal until the end of the season.
A day before Spence's move, winger Bryan Gil rejoined former club Sevilla on loan until the end of the season.
