Sergio Reguilon has arrived at Tottenham's training ground to complete his move from Real Madrid, with the defender expected to sign a five-year deal for a fee which could rise to £32m.

Reguilon travelled to London on a private jet owned by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Friday morning, alongside Real team-mate Gareth Bale.

Both players successfully completed medicals in the Spanish capital on Thursday and are likely to meet conditions that will enable them to avoid quarantining upon their arrival in the UK.

Along with having arrived from an elite sporting environment where coronavirus protocols have been adhered to, the players will both need to have returned negative test results within five days prior to entering the United Kingdom.

Reguilon was named the best left-back in La Liga for his performances last season while on loan at Sevilla.

    Real Madrid are well-stocked at left-back, with Brazil international Marcelo and France's Ferland Mendy already on their squad, so are keen to sell Reguilon to raise funds to balance the books at the club.

    Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton were previously interested in signing Reguilon, with the Merseyside club making an £18m bid for the defender back in July.

    Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho appears keen to strengthen his squad after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Everton on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg joined from Southampton and Matt Doherty arrived from Wolves earlier in the transfer window, but the signings of Bale and Reguilon will undoubtedly appease both the club's manager and supporters.
