Tottenham have signed Sevilla winger Bryan Gil, with Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela joining the Spanish club as part of the deal.

Twenty-year-old Gil, who has agreed a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee, made his Spain debut in March and is part of the squad at the Olympics.

He made 14 La Liga appearances for Sevilla, all as a substitute.

Lamela was one of seven players - along with Christian Eriksen, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Nacer Chadli - Tottenham signed in the summer when Gareth Bale left for Real Madrid in a world record £85m deal.

Lamela becomes the last of the seven to leave Spurs.

He scored 37 goals in 255 games and was an unused substitute in the 2019 Champions League final defeat by Liverpool. IMG-20210726-174233-761

Gil came through Sevilla's youth academy before making his senior debut in January 2019.

His final appearance came in September 2020 before he joined Eibar on a season-long loan.

He scored four goals in 28 league games as Eibar finished bottom of the table last season.
