The London club has confirmed the signing of Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for a fee mooted to be £23 million (R387 million).
The right back has signed a contract with the club until 2022, and will wear the No. 24 shirt.
"This is a huge and exciting opportunity at a massive football club and I am determined to prove myself as a professional both on and off the pitch," Aurier told Tottenham's official website.
"This is a fresh start for me and I will do everything to make the Spurs fanbase, which is huge and diverse, proud of me. The fans are the most important people at any club and I am looking forward to showing them and everyone at Spurs the real Serge Aurier."
The 24-year-old is believed to be a replacement for Kyle Walker, who moved to Manchester City in a £50 million (R842 million) deal in July.
Aurier made 81 appearances for PSG, scoring five goals and assisting a further 15 further strikes.
