TOTTENHAM this week completed the signing of Mexico international Giovani Dos Santos from Barcelona for an initial £4.7m.

That fee could rise to £8.6m depending on appearances. Giovani, 19, who has signed a five-year deal, said: "It's a dream to come to a big club like Spurs. I came here because of the passion of the fans, the size of the club and I can see us growing in the future."

Tottenham manager Juande Ramos expressed his delight and said: "If Giovani progresses as we hope, he will be a terrific player. I'm delighted."

However, reports this week linking West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand with a £6million move to the Lane are wide of the mark, according to a club spokesman.
