After being granted his work permit, the 21-year-old club record signing is in line for a Premier League debut on Sunday

Tottenham's club-record signing Davinson Sanchez has been cleared to make his Premier League debut against Burnley on Sunday.

The 21-year-old defender, who has joined for a reported £42million from Ajax, received his work permit and international clearance just 24 hours out from the Wembley Stadium clash.

Sanchez has represented Colombia on two occasions and was a key figure in Ajax's run to last season's Europa League final.

Mauricio Pochettino has spoken of his excitement at seeing Sanchez develop at Spurs, saying: "I like his personality and how he is aggressive, he is fast, he will fit for us very well.

"It's a massive opportunity because we believe he will be one of the best centre-backs in the world in the future."
