Tottenham have completed the signing of Brazil Under-20 and Sao Paulo defender Bruno Uvini on a three-and-a-half-month loan deal, with a view to a £3.1million permanent switch in the summer.

The 20-year-old believes the chance to join the Premier League giants was too good an opportunity to turn down, and is hoping to adapt to life in England quickly.

"It's a great opportunity that came by, I couldn't let it pass,” Uvini told Sao Paulo’s official website. “I have been in talks with Tottenham for a while, it's a great club, with worldwide visibility. They asked me to come right away.

“It'll be there for three months during which time I'll try to adapt to English football and to the culture. I think I'm going to evolve, both professionally and personally by doing this choice."

"[Tottenham] have this squad renewing project so they asked me to join the team so that I will be fit to make my way in the next season"

Uvini also spoke of his desire to represent Spurs in Champions League, and revealed he used to watch the competition on the television.

"To play the Champions League is every player's dream. In the preparation period ahead of matches we used to watch the games and play it in video games too. I hope this is the right path for me."
