Gray broke into Leeds’ first-team last season and he racked up 52 appearances in all competitions as Daniel Farke’s side finished third in the Championship.

A versatile player, Gray played at right-back and in central midfield on his way to winning the Championship’s Young Player of the Year and Apprentice of the Season awards for 2023-24.

Brentford were expected to sign Gray last week, but the Bees were unable to agree a payment structure with Leeds and the proposed move collapsed.

Tottenham soon swooped and Ange Postecoglou’s side have now confirmed Gray’s arrival.

Gray is Spurs’ third signing of the summer, with Lucas Bergvall arriving from Djurgardens for €10m and Timo Werner re-joining the club on loan from RB Leipzig.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool were all interested in signing Gray before Tottenham agreed a deal with Leeds.

The teenager made his England U21 debut against Azerbaijan in March and he marked the occasion with a goal. He then started at right-back versus Luxembourg just four days later and bagged an assist in a 7-0 win.
