TOTTENHAM’S new signing Brennan Johnson celebrated his £47.5million move by picking up the dinner bill for his Wales pals.

The forward, 22, completed his big-money deadline-day switch from Nottingham Forest with just ten minutes to spare on September 1.

Johnson stayed in London last weekend as his old club pulled off a shock league victory at Chelsea.

He was joined in the capital for a ‘Last Supper’ meal with close friends. They included former club team-mate Neco Williams, who said: “Everyone was buzzing for him.”

Johnson, Williams and Co all linked up with Robert Page and his Wales squad in Cardiff for Thursday’s friendly draw with South Korea and tomorrow’s must-win Euro 2024 qualifier in Latvia.

Williams added: “A few of the Welsh lads all went for food and Brennan got the bill.

“It was a little meet-up as well as a chance to say congratulations to Brennan on his move.

“We celebrated with a little drink and some nice food.”

Williams is delighted his pal Johnson finally got the green light to make the move to Tottenham after a summer of transfer talk.

The full-back already has December 16 circled because that is when Johnson will return to Nottingham in a Spurs shirt.


Williams, 22, and Johnson, who came through the Wales ranks together, share the same interests including clothes fashion.

The ex-Liverpool defender joked: “We’re all really pleased for him. I’m just not looking forward to seeing him come back to the City Ground!

“London suits a lot of people because there’s a lot going on there and so much stuff to do. 

“At the same time, he’s probably not thinking about what he can do on his days off. He’ll be focused purely on the football side. That will be his main goal – to go into Spurs and do well.

“I am sure he’s excited. Hopefully, he can now kick on with Spurs. You can see that his confidence has gone to the next level.”

Johnson started against Korea but was subbed at half-time to be protected for the Riga clash.

And although he has only scored twice in 21 caps, all eyes are on him to take over the mantle from Wales’ record scorer, Gareth Bale.

Williams added: “Bren isn’t Gareth or Harry Kane, he’s his own player with his own style. This is the next step in his career.

“Moving to Spurs means he’s joining a massive club and playing with unbelievable, world class footballers.

“He’s got the potential to reach the highest of levels. He’s only 22 and still very young.

“I’ve known him for quite a long time now. I think our first camp was with Wales at Under-16 level.

“He’s a confident guy. Now he’s got the big move, his confidence has gone to the next level – and hopefully he can take that with him into this Wales camp.

“He’s got a great family and friends and his circle around him is very close and tight. Hopefully he can keep progressing up the ladder and reach the highest level.”
