Tottenham Hotspur just announced its first player transfer of the summer transfer window. Spurs reached an agreement with Portsmouth Football Club, now in League One, for the sale of goalkeeper Luke McGee on a three year deal. The club did not release any details of the transfer fee or McGee’s wages.

This is an unsurprising transfer. McGee was out on loan at fellow League One club Peterborough last season, and he had a great year with the Posh, even winning the player’s Player of the Season award. Peterborough wanted him back on a permanent basis but reportedly weren’t able to afford his fee.

Pompey is also in League One after winning League Two last season, and are looking to upgrade in order to stay there. This is a good signing for Portsmouth, and McGee should do very well there.

McGee was stuck at Tottenham. He was clearly behind Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, and was arguably behind Pau Lopez as well. He’s a young keeper that needs games, and he clearly wasn’t going to get any at Spurs anytime soon. This is a good move for both McGee and Tottenham.

Good luck, Luke!
