Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has defended his decision to send striker Darren Bent out on loan to Brighton.
Tranmere chairman Mark Palios claims to have turned down the chance to sign Ched Evans.
The Argentine has signed a four-year deal after Spurs agreed to meet a reported £8m buyout clause in his Sevilla contract.
Fazio's arrival comes after the collapse of an earlier move for Villarreal's Mateo Musacchio, and 24 hours after centre-half Michael Dawson left White Hart Lane for Hull.
Shortly after Spurs announced the deal Fazio tweeted: "I’m really happy to be here at this club, this great club with very good players.
"I come to Tottenham because I think it’s a very good team, a very good club, very good fans. I know Spurs is a historic club in this country and league."
Sky sources, meanwhile, understand Sevilla are interested in replacing their captain with Celtic centre-half Virgil van Dijk.
Celtic are reluctant to sell the 23-year-old, who is also the subject of interest from two Premier League clubs.
