LaLiga

FC Barcelona have confirmed the departure of one of their new signings after the player spent just two months at the club.

Tottenham Hotspur have signed Brazilian defender Emerson Royal from the LaLiga club for a reported fee of €25 million (R427 million), with the fullback having signed a five-year contract with the north London club.

The 22-year-old rejoined the Catalans in July after the Spanish giants exercised their right to bring the right-back back to the Camp Nou from Real Betis, where he spent the previous two seasons. 

However, he will now be making his way to Spurs in the Premier League after making only three appearances for the Blaugrana.

"We are delighted to announce the signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona, subject to international clearance and a work permit," a statement from Spurs read.

"The right-back has signed a contract with us until 2026 and will wear the number 12 shirt."
