My mate Gio

Jamie O'Hara is convinced Giovani dos Santos will be a hit both on and off the pitch at Spurs.

The midfielder has got to know our summer capture from Barcelona well over the last fortnight at our training camp in Spain.

He explained: "I've been rooming with Gio and he's a great lad.

"We've had a real laugh already and I think we'll become close friends.

"He's always smiling, laughing, having a joke and he's got a heart of gold - he'll help you out with anything.

"His English is getting better and better and he's a great guy to be around. The lads have all taken to him well and he'll be a great player to have around."

It's fair to say Gio has been centre of attention with the locals - alongside Juande Ramos - on his return to Spain for this training camp.

"They love him out here and I keep reminding him of that every time he walks into the room - it's unbelievable!" laughed Jamie. "All the fans say ‘Gio, Gio, we love you' and I've told him that might be the case out here in Spain but back home in England, I'm the main man - just for a laugh!"
