Chelsea U-21 defender Marcel Lavinier has completed a move to London rival Tottenham Hotspur.
Lavinier was released by Chelsea in the summer, which prompted a move across London to Spurs.

The 19-year-old joined Chelsea as an Under-8, grew through the rank at Chelsea academy and was part of the quadruple-winning Chelsea U-18 side in 2017/18, making 25 appearances during the campaign.
Lavinier moved up the ladder and made his debut for the development squad in January 2019 and helped take them to the PL2 title.
The Portugal U-18 invitee has been trialling with Tottenham and featured in two U23 games against Arsenal and Southampton before winning a contract.
