EPL: Serge Aurier joins Tottenham Hotspurs from PSGThe former PSG right-back was highly rumoured to join Manchester United but North London rivals Spurs brought in the right back after Kyle Walker left for Manchester City.
Ivory Coast right back Serge Aurier has completed his move to Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain. The former PSG right-back was highly rumoured to join Manchester United but it was the North London team that have roped in the right back after Kyle Walker left for Manchester City.
The transfer was held up because there were complications with Aurier securing a work permit because he was sentenced to two months in prison last year for resisting arrest after leaving a Paris nightclub.
Aurier appealed against the sentence and never went to prison. PSG had to leave him out of its Champions League squad for a match against Arsenal in London last season because he was refused entry because of the ongoing case.
The 24-year-old Aurier played 57 league games for PSG, scoring twice, after joining from Toulouse, initially on loan in 2014. He won two league titles, three French Cups and three League Cups.
