After three years at White Hart Lane, Nacer Chadli has left Tottenham for West Bromwich Albion.
The Baggies have broken their transfer record to secure Chadli’s services, parting with £13 million. That represents a £6 million profit for Spurs on a player they spent £7 million on in 2013.

The Belgian enjoyed a relatively successful spell with Tottenham, scoring memorable goals against Arsenal and Chelsea. When on his game, Chadli was always one of the players Mauricio Pochettino could count on for a crucial goal or assist.
But his form dropped off towards the end of last season, seeing him miss out on a place in Belgium’s Euro 2016 squad. For that reason alone, it’s probably the right time for Chadli to leave the club.
The reaction on Twitter suggests Chadli will be fondly remembered by Spurs fans. Here are some of the best tweets.
