Cote d'Ivoire fullback Serge Aurier has joined Tottenham Hotspur from Paris Saint-Germain, completing Spurs' fourth signing of the transfer window.

Aurier joined the Premier League side for a reported fee of £23 million ($36 million), completing the move despite links with a host of clubs around Europe, including rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.

"This is a huge and exciting opportunity at a massive football club and I am determined to prove myself as a professional both on and off the pitch," he told Spurs' official website. 

"This is a fresh start for me and I will do everything to make the Spurs fanbase, which is huge and diverse, proud of me.

"The fans are the most important people at any club and I am looking forward to showing them and everyone at Spurs the real Serge Aurier."

The 24-year-old's signing adds to a busy end to the transfer window for Tottenham, who brought in Juan Foyth from Estudiantes on Wednesday and have also landed Davinson Sanchez and Paulo Gazzaniga over the last week of the window.

Aurier joins Kieran Trippier and youngster Kyle Walker-Peters as Spurs' right-back options following the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City last month, with Dani Alves' arrival at PSG from Juventus leaving the Ivorian behind both he and Thomas Meunier.

The Ivory Coast international appeared 81 times for PSG, joining the Ligue 1 side in 2014.
