Terms agreed for Defendi

Posted on 4 July 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

We are delighted to announce that we have agreed terms with Brazilian side Cruzeiro for the £600,000 transfer of highly-rated defender Rodrigo Defendi.

The 18-year-old, who was born in Ribeirao Preto in Brazil, becomes our first signing under our new coaching set-up, which is already reaping rewards as the player was highly sought after by clubs both at home and abroad.

Defendi will join in a four-year deal once formalities are completed next week, after which he should be available to link up with the rest of the squad for the early part of pre-season.
