Spurs sporting director Frank Arnesen has finalised his controversial switch to Premiership champions Chelsea.

A compensation settlement, reported to be around 8m, was agreed after Spurs threatened to report Chelsea for an illegal approach to the Dane.

And Arnesen will officially move to Stamford Bridge on 1 September.

A suspension imposed after news of his move to Chelsea leaked out has ended, and he will continue to work for Spurs until he makes the switch.

A Spurs statement read: "Frank Arnesen will remain employed by Tottenham until 31 August 2005. Frank has been assisting the Club throughout his period of suspension, which is now ended, and will continue to do so until his employment terminates.

"The Club is confident that Frank will carry out his duties in a thoroughly professional manner."

A statement on Chelsea's website, said: "Chelsea can confirm that final documentation relating to Frank Arnesen's move from Spurs has now been signed."
