Tottenham Hotspur travel to take on Preston North End this weekend and they may have a new face involved after signing Arnaut Danjuma.

The FA Cup takes centre stage this weekend and PNE’s home clash with Tottenham is one of the ties of the fourth round.

Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and co head to Deepdale ultimately looking to avoid an upset in Lancashire.

Tottenham haven’t exactly been in top form of late, so PNE do have some hope of pulling off a relative giantkilling on Saturday night.

There may well be a new face in the Tottenham squad though after Spurs pulled off a rather dramatic swoop for Arnaut Danjuma.

Everton were in the box seat to sign Danjuma and even carried out a medical for the Villarreal star over the weekend.

Yet with Frank Lampard sacked on Monday, Tottenham sensed an opportunity to change Danjuma’s mind – and they have pulled off a deal.

Tottenham have this afternoon announced the signing of Danjuma on loan until the end of the season, with an option to buy in the summer.

The Dutch wide man will now be available to make his Tottenham debut against PNE in the FA Cup, pending international clearance.

Tottenham new boy Danjuma has already scored against PNE

A dangerous attacker on his day, Danjuma just gives Tottenham that extra bit of firepower – and he does have history against PNE.

Danjuma started for Bournemouth against PNE in March 2021, scoring the opener in a 1-1 draw at Deepdale.

Danjuma would no doubt love to repeat the trick against North End on Saturday as he makes a big return to English football.

North End did beat Bournemouth 3-2 away from home in that season, but Danjuma missed the game through injury.

As if coping with Son, Kane, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski wasn’t enough, PNE now have another top attacker to worry about in Danjuma.
