Tottenham Hotspur have signed central midfielder Eveliina Summanen from Swedish side Kristianstads on a contract until 2023.

Summanen had been with Kristianstads DFF since January 2020, making 43 starts and scoring five times.

She has 34 caps for her country and played throughout Finland’s 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying campaign and successful qualification for the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.

Summanen told tottenhamhotspur.com: “It’s a dream to sign for Tottenham Hotspur, I’m very proud to be a Spurs player. The Club has big ambitions and I’m incredibly happy to be a part of the next stage of the journey here. I felt that now is the right time to take the next step in my career and play in one of the top leagues in the world. I can’t wait to get started.”

Head coach Rehanne Skinner said: “I am delighted to have Eveliina join us in the January window. She has an extremely valuable amount of experience despite her age and has played a key role at both club and international level helping Finland to successfully qualify for the UEFA Women’s Euros 2022. Eveliina will adapt well to life in the WSL – she brings a fantastic work ethic and strong technical capabilities. We are looking forward to what the future will bring for her here at Spurs.”
