Moussa Dembele relishing chance to be part of Tottenham’s exciting future
Tottenham's new signing Moussa Dembele is relishing the chance to be part of the club's exciting future after joining from Fulham
Moussa Dembele has revealed he is relishing the chance to play his part in Tottenham Hotspur’s promising future after completing a £15m move from Fulham on Wednesday.
The Belgium international, who is Andre Villas-Boas’ fourth summer signing, sealed his switch to White Hart Lane after passing a medical with the north Londoners.
“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,” Dembele told Tottenham’s website.
“The club has plans to do lots of good things and that’s why I want to be a part of it.”
Dembele scored seven times in 74 appearances for Fulham after former Cottagers manager Roy Hodgson signed the forward from AZ Alkmaar in 2010.
The 25-year-old will now link up with compatriot Jan Vertonghen, who joined Tottenham from Eredivisie champions Ajax in July.
And Tottenham’s latest signing revealed the Belgian defender played a part in convincing him to move to White Hart Lane.
“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.”
