Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has joined Inter Milan on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

The 27-year-old, who was out of contract in the summer, has signed for the Serie A side for a fee in the region of £17m (€20m).

Eriksen ends a glittering six-and-a-half-year stay in north London, where he was a driving force behind Spurs' ascent towards to the top of the English game. 

As his departure was announced, Spurs revealed they had taken the option to make Giovani Lo Celso's loan move from Real Betis permanent.

The Argentinian, seen as a natural replacement for Eriksen, has joined for £27.2m (€32.1m) on a deal until 2025.

Jose Mourinho is also closing in on the signing of winger Steven Bergwijn to replace him, after agreeing a deal with PSV Eindhoven.

The Premier League club look set to bring in the Dutchman for £25.6m (€30.2m) plus add-ons.

Bergwijn is in London for a medical and to discuss personal terms, with his Eredivisie club confirming on Tuesday that he was not training.

The situation blew up on Sunday night when the 22-year-old, who is a Holland international, was left out of PSV's game with FC Twente.

He was accused by the Dutch media of travelling to London without the club's permission, but manager Ernest Faber later confirmed that it was sanctioned.

Bergwijn (below) will become Spurs' second signing of the transfer window following the earlier arrival of Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes on an 18-month loan.

The imminent arrival of the PSV man will not impact the search for a striker, which looks set to go down to the wire.

Spurs are understood to be in discussions with AC Milan over Krzysztof Piatek and have three days to get a deal done before Friday's deadline.
