Here’s a new way to break transfer news: on your family’s Facebook page.

Fernando Llorente’s brother and agent, Chus Llorente, posted a photo of the Spanish striker in his new Tottenham Hotspur shirt on the “Fernando Llorente‘s Family” Facebook page.

Chus calls the last few days “difficult,” but says the family is very happy with his move to #tottenhamhotspurs. Plural.

Llorente rebounded from a four-goal season at Sevilla to score 15 for Swans last season, his seventh double-digit league goal campaign in the last seasons.
