Yesterday afternoon saw confirmation of the £15m signing of Moussa Dembele and the Belgian international could go straight into the side for Saturday’s visit of Norwich City. The 25 year old spoke to the press after the deal went through and expressed his delight at joining the club.
“I’m happy to join Spurs. It’s a fantastic club,” Dembele said on the club’s official website.
“You can see over the last few years that Spurs have played well. Everybody knows it’s a good team and a good club and that’s why I wanted to come here.
“The club have plans to do lots of good things and that’s why I want to be a part of it.”
Moussa also said that he was looking forward to linking up with fellow Belgian Jan Vertonghen.
“I know Jan from when I was 10 years old. We played together then,” he added. “I know him well. He’s a great guy and he’s said a lot of good things about this club.
“He says there are friendly people here and, for me, that’s very important – to feel great somewhere. I’m sure I will here.”
Dembele should be available for Saturday’s game but will he make the starting XI or will AVB start the Belgian on the bench?
