Alejo Veliz and Micky van de Ven have both signed with Tottenham.

Tottenham has signed Micky van de Ven, a defender for the Netherlands Under-21 team, and Alejo Veliz, a forward for the Argentina Under-20 team.

Spurs paid Wolfsburg an initial 40 million euros (£34 million) for Van de Ven, who is 22 years old. The price could go up to 50 million euros (£43 million) if there are add-ons.

Veliz, who is 19 years old, has moved from Rosario Central to the London club for an estimated £13 million, pending a work permit.

Both players have agreed to stay at Tottenham for six years.

The English midfielder James Maddison, the Italian goalie Guglielmo Vicario, and the Israeli winger Manor Solomon were Tottenham’s first, second, and third summer signings, respectively.

Van de Ven was the leader of the Netherlands Under-21 team at the European Championship this summer. He could be in the Spurs team for Tuesday’s (19:00 BST) final pre-season game at Barcelona.

Last season, he played 33 games in the Bundesliga after moving to Wolfsburg from Dutch team Volendam for £3m in 2021.

He usually plays center back on the left side, but he played left back six of the 36 times he played in all events last season.

Veliz joined Rosario Central in 2019, and he played for the first time with the first team in July 2021.

In all events, he has played in 62 games for the Argentine Primera Division team and scored 19 goals.

Veliz has played for Argentina at the U20 level nine times and scored three goals. In 2023, he played in both the U20 World Cup and the U20 South American Championship.

On Sunday, Spurs play their first Premier League game of the season at Brentford.
