Tottenham youngster Alejo Veliz is joining Sevilla on loan.

The 20-year-old Argentine joined Tottenham in the summer and has made eight substitute appearances in the Premier League, scoring his only goal at Brighton in December.

However, Tottenham feel Veliz will benefit from playing more frequently for Sevilla, who have also signed Manchester United’s Hannibal Mejbri on loan during the current transfer window.

Meanwhile, Bryan Gil is still to decide whether to join Brighton.

Tottenham have cleared the 22-year-old to complete another loan move after previous spells with Sevilla and Valencia.

However, it is not certain the deal will go through.
