Serge Aurier: Tottenham Defender Leaves Club By Mutual Consent

Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier has left English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspurs after agreeing to end his contract.

Aurier, a former Lens player, joined Tottenham from Paris St-Germain on a four-year deal in 2017 for a fee in the region of £23m.

The 28-year old had failed to nail down a regular place at the Lilywhites and his last appearance was in May against Leeds United.

“The Club can confirm the departure of Serge Aurier following the mutual termination of his contract,” Tottenham said in a statement.

“Signed from PSG in August 2017, Serge made his debut in our 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League before going on to make 110 appearances for us, scoring eight goals.”

It was thought that Aurier would only leave the club at the end of the season, but it seems the club have decided to sort out the issue of his future now.

“I have really enjoyed my time at Spurs and would like to thank the Club and the fans, but I feel now is the right time for me to move onto a new challenge, ” said Aurier after his release.

Aurier is now expected to choose his next destination in the coming weeks as a free agent having previously been linked with a move to Barcelona.

He had previously turned for PSG where he had joined from Toulouse – initially on loan – in 2014 and has won two French titles and two French cups.

In addition, he represented the Ivory Coast at the 2014 World Cup and started every game when they won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2015, scoring in the penalty shootout win over Ghana in the final.
