REVEALED: Spurs can save millions with early Lo Celso deal

Tottenham can save themselves millions by buying Giovani Lo Celso outright in January, it has been revealed.

Lo Celso is expected to be the long-term replacement for Christian Eriksen who looks set to leave either in January or the summer.

The deal was expected to be a permanent one in the summer, before the 18-month loan deal was confirmed on deadline day.

There is an obligation to purchase Lo Celso written into the deal with Betis, but Mundo Deportivo reports Tottenham can get a discount if they trigger his purchase before the end of the season.

So if Tottenham make the move permanent in January they would save 20% on the deal and would be able to get him for £27.5m rather than £34.2m.
