Ziegler's here

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).

The highly-rated Swiss Under-21 star Reto Ziegler is now a Tottenham player after we brought forward his move from Grasshoppers Zurich.


We had originally agreed a deal with Grasshoppers to sign the 18-year-old left-sided player at the end of the Swiss season in January. But the clubs have now reached agreement to bring the move forward before today’s transfer window closes and the deal has been completed.


Ziegler, who can operate in defence or in midfield, made 41 appearances for Grasshoppers Zurich and appeared in European competition for them, as well as having won caps at Under-21, Under-19 and Under-17 levels for Switzerland.
