The central defender snapped up from FC Cologne in the Bundesliga arrived at Hotspur Way for his first day as a Spurs player this morning (Monday, July 6).

Kevin, 22, was then straight into medical testing, the first step of pre-season training for all our players.

The Austrian international told us it was a ‘big honour’ to join the club and he’s relishing his first day.

“It was always a dream for me to play for a club like this and to play in the Premier League,” he told us.

“Now I’m here, to start training at such an amazing training centre, it’s a very good feeling. For a footballer, it can’t be better.

“It was such a good feeling to wear my new kit, with the Tottenham Hotspur logo, it makes me very proud.

“My first training session was very tough but this is what pre-season is about!
