The Dutch international goalkeeper has joined us from Swansea in a four-year deal and will hook up with the squad this week after an extended break following Holland's expolits at the World Cup.
Asked what he was most looking forward to, Michel said: "Just to work at a big club like this.
"For me everything is new, you have players who have already worked at big clubs and come to this club and maybe it’s easier for them but for me, everything is new so I’m looking forward to everything - White Hart Lane, this immense training ground to train with such a quality squad, all the big games against Arsenal and Chelsea.
"That’s also a reason to sign here - because I want to taste how it is to work and to play for a big club like Spurs.
"I played against the lads here in the Premier League and I think it’s a team with a lot of quality.
"I’ve already heard great stories about the manager and all the players so for me it’s just looking forward to a whole new experience to be at a top team and a top club. It’s a new challenge and I’m really looking forward to it.
"I think it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and I’m very pleased to be here and I'm looking forward to joining the boys in training."
