Tin Jedvaj claims that Tottenham Hotspur tried to sign him before he joined Roma.

Tin Jedvaj has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur tried to sign him before his recent move to Roma.

The 17-year-old Croatian defender joined the Serie A side from Dinamo Zagreb for £4.3m earlier this month.

"In the last weeks, there had been a strong interest from Tottenham, but Roma did a strong negotiation and now I'm happy to be in this group," he told the Giallorossi's official website.

Jedvaj has earned two caps for Croatia at Under-19 level.
