Tottenham Hotspur summer signing Emerson Royal has posted a photo confirming he’s arrived at Luton Airport.
The right-back signed for the Lilywhites on transfer deadline day on a five-year contract for £25.7m.
However, the Brazilian never actually came to the United Kingdom to complete any part of his move.
The player’s medical was held in Barcelona with images showing the ace walking across the Catalan giants’ training ground last Tuesday.
On his Instagram account, Royal posted pictures of him boarding a plane and then touching down in London Luton.

But, with Emerson arriving, and potentially making his first appearance this weekend, a new era will begin.
