Championship club Millwall have completed the loan signing of Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga for the remainder of the season.
It was reported yesterday that Spurs have recalled the defender from his disastrous loan spell at Augsburg.
The decision to terminate his loan deal with the Bundesliga club was made after he failed to make a single appearance for them.
It was said that the club are desperate to find a solution for the 24-year-old and are working on a deal to send him out to Championship club Millwall.
The move has been completed today. Spurs shared the news on their official website, confirming that the defender has joined Millwall for the rest of the season.
