Tottenham hand trial to Brazil Under-20 captain Bruno Uvini

Tottenham Hotspur are understood to have handed a two-month trial to Brazil Under-20 captain Bruno Uvini.

It is thought Spurs have agreed the deal with his club Sao Paulo, although the 20-year-old has yet to arrive in England.

The centre-half led Brazil to victory in the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia last August. 

"It's a great opportunity that came up and I couldn't let it pass me," Uvini told Sao Paulo's official website.

"Tottenham are a big club with worldwide exposure and they've asked me to present myself.

"I will grow up a lot in my professional and personal life with this choice."
