Mousa Dembele can’t wait to be part of a 'fantastic club' here at Spurs.

Dembele's delight

We reached agreement with Fulham for the signing of the Belgium international on Wednesday.

Mousa has won many admirers with his performances for the Cottagers – the latest a man-of-the-match display against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Now he’s looking forward to a new chapter in an already-impressive career.

“I'm happy to join Spurs, it's a fantastic club,” said Mousa, a Dutch title-winner with AZ Alkmaar in 2009.

“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.”

Mousa is looking forward to linking up with Belgian international team-mate Jan Vertonghen – and the pair go back a long way.

“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.”
