Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will stay and fight for his place in the Tottenham Hotspur team this season. A last-minute bid for the Danish international was made, but Atletico Madrid fell short in their pursuit.
Hojbjerg was heavily expected to leave the North London club this summer, but no club met the valuation for the player. Atletico made a late move in the window, but their offer was knocked back as they didn’t include an obligation to buy, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg remains a Tottenham player
Hojbjerg was made surplus to requirements by Ange Postecoglou, but no club met the club’s valuation this summer. Man United had been interested in the Danish international, but the Red Devils always had their sights set on Sofyan Amrabat to cover their midfield issues.
Atletico had a long standing interest in Hojbjerg throughout the summer. But, a deal always appeared challenging to complete, as the Spanish giants needed to follow FFP regulations.
The developments on deadline day mean that Hojbjerg remains a Spurs player, and he will now fight for his place in the Tottenham team until at least January.
