Fabrizio Romano revealed that Brennan Johnson is all but officially a Tottenham Hotspur player after the deal was struck on deadline day with Nottingham Forest. Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge earlier reported that the player has completed his medical tests ahead of his move to North London.
Brennan Johnson Officially Announced
Medical Tests Completed a Few Hours Ago
Brennan Johnson’s announcement as a Tottenham player is imminent, just hours from the transfer deadline following his signing from Forest. The agreement was reached between the clubs earlier today after the Lilywhites had followed the player for a major part of the transfer window.
He could potentially fill the void left by the departure of Harry Kane, not necessarily with his goals but more so with his creativity and attacking threat in the final third.
The Londoners will pay a transfer fee of £47.5 million fixed to their fellow Premier League side, as reported by David Ornstein earlier. There are no add-ons in the agreement. However, Forest retains a 10 per cent sell-on clause for the Welsh forward.

Tottenham’s Potential Transfer Activity in the Final Hours of the Window
With the transfer market almost reaching its culmination, it is unlikely that the North London club will make any more moves.
One deal that can come to fruition is that of Chelsea player Trevor Chalobah. The 24-year-old was close to joining Bayer Munich but the deal collapsed at the last moment. He could end up being a Spurs player at the end of the day. However, the involvement of Nottingham Forest and their permanent deal offer could complicate the situation for Ange Postecoglou’s side.
