Transfer news: Tottenham sign midfielder
Tottenham have completed the £15 million signing of Fulham’s Mousa Dembele who has penned a five-year deal.
The Belgian had been linked with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal but Spurs were the only ones to make an offer for the playmaker.
“We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Fulham for the transfer of Mousa Dembele,” a club statement read.
“The Belgium international has won many admirers with his performances in the Premier League since arriving at Craven Cottage in August 2010 from AZ Alkmaar, with who he won the Eredivisie league title in 2009.
“Dembele originally joined Fulham as a forward, although his ability to drive forward with the ball and his eye for a pass saw him played in an attacking midfield role last season, a move that proved a huge success.
“In total, he made 74 appearances for the Cottagers, scoring seven times.”
The Belgian international midfielder added on Twitter: “Happy to confirm I signed a new contract with Tottenham FC!”
“I would like to thank all the Fulham fans for their support! You were amazing.”
