The Spaniard, 26, could make his debut for the club against Arsenal on Sunday after being registered on time by United.
'In life you have to be ready for everything and the chance to represent this great club with such an illustrious history is one that I could not turn down,' said Reguilon.
'Having spoken to the manager, I know what he needs from me, and I am ready to play my part in helping the team to achieve success.
'I know that I can contribute to Manchester United this season; I am ready to fight for this group and show everyone my qualities.'
Sergio Reguilon has agreed a season-long loan move to Manchester United from Tottenham
Erik ten Hag said on Friday that Reguilon would bring experience to his Man United side
United went into the market for a left back after Luke Shaw was ruled out for 10 weeks with injury
United went into the market for a left-sided defender after injuries to Shaw and Tyrell Malacia left Erik ten Hag short in the position. Mail Sport revealed on Thursday that the England international would be out for 10 weeks.
The club had initially targeted a move for Chelsea's Marc Cucurella but talks stalled after he featured for the Blues in their Carabao Cup win over AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday.
Ideally they wanted an exit clause allowing them to send Cucurella back to Chelsea in January once Shaw and back-up Malacia are fully fit.
Yet Wednesday night's appearance meant that Cucurella would not have been eligible to leave and then appear for a third club in the second part of the season should Chelsea wish to move him on again.
Reguilon was given permission by Spurs to have a medical at United on Thursday and has now completed the remaining paperwork.
'He is very experienced player, played for big clubs, played a lot of games in La Liga and Premier league so has a very good background so he can play very intense football so we are happy,' Ten Hag said in his press conference on Friday.
'We had a problem with Luke Shaw injured so we covered very well in an emergency situation.'
Ten Hag revealed Reguilon had already been training with United ahead of the club formally announcing his loan switch.
''He (Reguilon) is here, he trained,' he said. 'He's a very experienced player, played for big clubs, already played a lot of La Liga and Premier League games.
'He has a very good background, he can play very intense football, so we are happy. We had a problem with Luke Shaw injured and Tyrell Malacia injured, they are long-term out, so we responded well in that emergency situation.'
United's football director John Murtough added: 'Once it became clear that we needed to bring in another left-back we assessed a number of targets and acted quickly to sign Sergio. He possesses all the required qualities to help us achieve our aims this season.
United's talks over Marc Cucurella hit an impasse due to Chelsea's demand for a £7m loan fee - with the club reviving negotiations with Reguilon
'He has good experience in both the Premier League and in European competitions, so he is ready to come into the squad and perform straight away.'
The latest news around Shaw, as revealed on show on Thursday afternoon, is the latest blow to Ten Hag following their mixed start to the season.
Reguilon, who spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, doesn't appear to have a future at Tottenham under Ange Postecoglou and hasn't been involved so far this season.
The former Real Madrid man joined Tottenham in 2020 and has made 67 appearances for the north London club.
