Alnwick had been linked with Spurs over the summer
Sunderland keeper Ben Alnwick has joined Tottenham, in a deal that sees Spurs' Martin Fulop make his loan deal permanent at the Black Cats.

Sunderland will pay 500,000 for keeper Fulop who has a three-and-a-half-year deal following a successful loan spell.

Highly-rated Alnwick, 20, heads to White Hart Lane for 900,000 rising to 1.3m depending on appearances.

Meanwhile, Sunderland have also sold Liam Lawrence to Stoke for an initial fee of 500,000.

Alnwick broke into the Sunderland team in 2004/2005 season and made 22 first team appearances for the Black Cats.

Alnwick has been capped by England at Under-17, U18, and U19 level, receiving his first call-up to the U21 squad ahead of the August qualifier against Moldova.

Tottenham sporting director Damien Comolli said: "We are very pleased to bring another young and talented prospect to the club.

"Ben may only be 20 years old but he has significant international and Premiership experience. Ben showed great motivation and desire to join us and I know he is excited to be part of our future."
