Tottenham Hotspur have signed Israeli forward Manor Solomon on a free transfer.
Solomon, whose contract at Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk expired in June, joins the Premier League side on a five-year deal following his impressive loan spell at Fulham last campaign.
The Israeli forward spent last season on loan at Fulham, for whom he made 24 competitive appearances and scored five goals.
Reacting to his move to North London, Solomon said on Twitter:
“I’m so delighted and excited to be joining this fantastic football club.
“It’s truly an honour to be here, and I can’t wait to get started. To dare is to do!”
The 24-year-old becomes Spurs’ fourth major summer signing after the arrivals of James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, and Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent deal.

With Solomon joining, Ange Posteclogue’s side will now focus on sorting out the future of wantaway striker Harry Kane.
The England international has been subject to several bids from Bayern Munich.
The 30-year-old, who has just one year left on his current deal, has told the club he wants to leave this summer. However, Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to sell him.
But there is a growing concern that Levy will allow him to leave to avoid losing him for free in a year.
