Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Spanish right-back Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon.
Porro, 23, has joined on loan until the end of the season, with an obligation to make the deal permanent in the summer.
Spurs had been linked to Porro for the majority of the window, but any move was conditional on Sporting being able to find a replacement. It seemed as if the move would break down when it became doubtful Sporting could find one.

However, the Portuguese club have agreed a deal with Barcelona to sign former Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, which has meant that the Porro deal could be completed.
Antonio Conte had been on the hunt for more defenders, with the team having conceded more goals than any other side in the top 12 in the Premier League this season.
As a result of the Porro signing, Matt Doherty has left and joined Atletico Madrid in a surprise move.
Doherty was expected to leave on loan but his contract was terminated on deadline day and he has joined on a deal until the end of the season.
Doherty made 71 appearances in all competitions for Spurs after joining from Wolves in 2020.
