Tottenham have announced the signing of former Manchester United defender Zeki Fryers from Standard Liege.

Fryers, 20, left Old Trafford in July after failing to agree a new contract with the club, despite being highly rated by the backroom staff.

A statement on the Tottenham website read: "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Standard Liege for the signing of Zeki Fryers.

"The young defender, capped by England at Under-16, 17 and 19 level, began his career at Manchester United before joining Standard Liege last summer.

"Zeki will link up with the club's development squad."
