The London club will sign the Hajduk Split junior in 2025.

Vuskovic will stay in his home in Croatia until the summer when he turns 18 before joining Spurs. A few premier teams in Europe have shown interest in the 16-year-old who has already made 11 senior appearances for Hajduk Split.

Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain started bidding for Vuskovic in March, with clubs like Barcelona and Bayern Munich ratcheting up their interest throughout the summer. But it was made clear that Vuskovic had prioritised a transfer to Tottenham early in September, and this upcoming move has now been officialised.

Vuskovic’s contract with Spurs has been reported to be until 2030 once he joins the team. A record-breaking year for Vuskovic with Hajduk Split was 2023. He made his senior debut in February, becoming the league’s youngest player ever, and then scored against NK Osijek to become the club’s youngest-ever goal scorer.

In addition to starting for the Under-19s during their run to the UEFA Youth League final, which they lost to AZ Alkmaar, Vuskovic also contributed to Hajduk Split’s senior team’s victory in the Croatian Cup.

With the additions of Micky van de Ven and Ashley Phillips in the summer, Vuskovic becomes Tottenham’s third centre-back to join since Ange Postecoglou became head coach.
