Rafa was a big hit in his two seasons at the Club after joining us from Real Madrid on summer transfer deadline day in 2010.

The legendary Dutch forward - 109 caps having made his debut in 2001 - believes Vincent will make his mark in the Premier League after completing his switch from AZ Alkmaar.

“In my opinion Tottenham have signed a great striker,” said Rafa, who lit up the Lane with some of his performances, particularly in the Champions League.

“He’s still young but he’s a real striker. He loves to play and work for the team but he doesn’t just score goals, he makes goals as well.

“If you work hard at Tottenham and in the Premier League, people will love you and if you score goals, you will be a legend. I hope he will do both.

“I think it’s a great signing for Tottenham and a great move for Vincent.”
