Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Iago Falque on a season-long loan, as the Juventus midfielder follows Emmanuel Adebayor into White Hart Lane.
The signing of the 21-year-old Spaniard was announced a short while after Adebayor joined in a similar arrangement from Manchester City.
Spurs are short of options in midfield thanks to injuries to the likes of Sandro, Steven Pienaar and unsettled star Luka Modric.
A statement on Spurs' official website read: "We are delighted to announce the signing of Iago Falque on a season-long loan from Juventus."
Falque started his professional career at Barcelona before moving to Juventus, where he has been loaned out to Bari and Villarreal B over the last two seasons.
The Spain Under 21 international is the third youngster to arrive at White Hart Lane this summer following the signings of former Barcelona player Cristian Ceballos and 16-year-old Souleymane Coulibaly from Siena.
Spurs have also been strongly linked with a move for Real Madrid's Lassana Diarra, although he appears pessimistic about his chances of a move to White Hart Lane.
