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."
