OFFICIAL:Antonio Conte signed with Tottenham

It is understood Conte, who has a long-term relationship with Paratici, has agreed an 18 month contract with a pro-rata salary of around £15million.

Sources claimed on Monday that Tottenham were exploring the possibility inserting a 12-month extension option into the deal.

There was growing optimism at Tottenham on Monday afternoon that Conte would be their next manager, with one well-placed insisting the deal was as good as done.

Indeed, players were told to expect the new manager to be in situ to take this morning’s training session at the club’s Enfield HQ.

And his arrival was rubber-stamped late on Monday night.

Conte came close to joining Spurs in the summer but eventually decided against taking the role amid concerns over the club’s ambition.

Conte’s appointment will be viewed as a major victory for the club given his standing as one of the planet’s leading coaches.
