Bobby Convey has expressed his delight at joining Spurs - a move that remains subject to a work permit.
The young star of the MLS and USA national team spoke this afternoon via a trans-Atlantic conference call after agreeing terms with us yesterday.
"I'm very excited," he insisted. "It's a great move for me and I'm happy to show that a young American can develop in the States and go to a big team like Tottenham."
Still just 20, the left-sided midfielder impressed in both of our friendly matches against DC United last October and in May this year.
"I think it's the next step in my career and hopefully I can show well for the MLS, the national team and DC United," he continued.
"The Premiership is one of the best leagues in the world and you can't pass up the opportunity to go and play with and against some of the best players in the world.
"I think I've developed in the MLS and with the national team and this is the right step for me."
Bobby already has 18 international caps to his name having made his US national debut aged 17 years, 151 days - the third youngest cap in America's history.
He was also the youngest player to score in the MLS at 17 years, 10 months and 11 days when he notched against Kansas City in October 2001.
