Udinese sporting director Pierpaolo Marino admits they couldn't resist Tottenham's offer for Destiny Udogie.
The wing-back signed for Spurs last summer before being loaned back to the Zebrette for the season.
Marino told TV12: "We decided to sell Udogie to Tottenham last summer because they offered big money.
"It was impossible to say no."
This season, Udogie has three goals and three assists in 24 games. The 20-year-old has six caps at U21 level for Italy.
