Moussa Dembele shares his delight at completing a move to Tottenham Hotspur and linking up with friend Jan Vertonghen.

Moussa Dembele has declared that he is delighted to join Tottenham Hotspur after agreeing a deal to move to North London earlier today.

The Belgian playmaker said that he decided to leave Fulham for White Hart Lane because of the club's ambition to move forward.

He told the club's official website: "I'm happy to join Spurs, it's a fantastic club.

"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 has plans to do lots of good things and that's why I want to be a part of it."

Dembele also revealed that he cannot wait to link up with international teammate and long-time friend Jan Vertonghen.

He said: "I know Jan from when I was 10 years old, we played together then. 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 goes straight into contention to make his Spurs debut against Norwich City on Saturday.
