While remaining elevated, United Kingdom inflation unexpectedly eased from 2.9% to 2.6% in July. Manufacturers' selling prices rose at a solid, yet slower, pace.

Llorente worked under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte during their respective time at Italian club Juventus.

Spurs have bought a bargain in the 32-year-old, even if he is a short term addition.

Llorente appears to have been the third transfer Spurs beat Chelsea to over this summer.

Llorente was key to Swansea's survival last season, scoring 15 goals for a struggling side that may well have been doomed without him.
