Tottenham Hotspur announce Manor Solomon signing

Tottenham Hotspur announce the signing of Israeli attacker Manor Solomon on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk on a five-year deal.

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of Israel attacker Manor Solomon on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 23-year-old joins the Lilywhites on a five-year contract until the end of the 2027-28 campaign and becomes the fourth signing of the Ange Postecoglou era.

Solomon follows Dejan Kulusevski, Guglielmo Vicario and James Maddison to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, having made his mark in the Premier League during a loan spell with Fulham last year.

Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, players based in the Ukrainian divisions were allowed to suspend their contracts by FIFA, and Solomon subsequently joined Fulham for the 2022-23 campaign.

The Israel international made his debut for Marco Silva‘s side in their opening 2-2 draw with Liverpool, but a knee injury and subsequent operation forced him to sit on the sidelines for five months.

Solomon completed his recovery in time for the start of 2023, and while he struggled for regular starts at Craven Cottage, he made his presence felt as a substitute with five goals in 24 games.

Solomon came off the bench to score in three successive Premier League games against Nottingham Forest, Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers, before starting and netting in an FA Cup fifth-round win over Leeds United.

The former Maccabi Petah Tikva youngster stretched his scoring streak to five games in a 3-2 defeat to Brentford on March 6, which would prove to be his final goal contribution in a Fulham shirt.
