Udogie spent Sunday night at Hotspur Way and will complete a medical on Monday before returning to Udinese on a season-long loan. The deal could rise by a further £3million with add-ons, but Tottenham are not due to begin paying the Italian club for the defender until the summer of 2024. Left-back Udogie made 35 appearances in Serie A last season, scoring five times but sat out Udinese's league opener away to AC Milan on Saturday while finalising his move to England.
Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have both given their take on a fiery London derby that saw both men sent off in a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham. The first flare-up came after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s shot from long range put Spurs level early in the second half, which earned both coaches and a couple of assistants yellow cards. At full time, following Tottenham’s second equaliser via Harry Kane, Tuchel and Conte were again sent off after the Chelsea boss took exception to the manner of his counterpart’s handshake.
Thomas Tuchel hopes referee Anthony Taylor doesn’t referee Chelsea matches in future and was furious after a feeling refereeing decisions cost his side a win at home to Tottenham.
