Spurs also announced that defender Kyle Walker-Peters will join Southampton after spending last season on loan at St. Mary's.

Hojbjerg joined Southampton from Bayern Munich in 2016 and made over 100 appearances for the Saints.

"What was very important for me is that I wanted to play in a club where I could see myself for many years," Hojbjerg said in a video posted on the Spurs Twitter account.

"Tottenham was just the one. I'm very proud... I think there's a fantastic future ahead for the club. And I wanted so much to be a part of that."

The midfielder was stripped of the Southhampton captaincy in June after he told manager Ralph Hasenhuttl he wanted to play Champions League football. Spurs finished sixth in the league standings and will play in the Europa League next season.

The Denmark international becomes the club's fourth permanent signing since Jose Mourinho took charge after Gedson Fernandes, Giovani Lo Celso and Steven Bergwijn.

Hasenhuttl praised Walker-Peters for his performance last season.

"It was not easy for Kyle when he arrived here. He needed some time to adapt to our style of play, and then we had this period where we could not be together as a team," Hasenhuettl said in a statement.

"But you could see from how he performed when we came back that he had worked a lot in this time, both on his physical condition and also on his understanding of our own game. It says a lot to me about this player that he was able to do this.

"He's a good fit for our style."

The new Premier League season begins on Sept. 12.
