Moura’s Spurs career starts in earnest

Our January transfer dealings were limited to just the signing of winger Lucas Moura from PSG – and we are waiting to see our new man in action.

An article in The Daily Mail describes how £25m Brazilian looked close to first team fitness as he trained with his new team mates for the first time on Tuesday at the club’s Enfield facility.

It describes Moura being in full flow, sliding into a challenge on Erik Lamela, and keeping the ball under close control during a training drill and how he also enjoyed training with Moussa Sissoko and Serge Aurier – the latter was also a team mate at PSG – and the three posed for the cameras at training, arms around each other.

It adds that while Moura is a skilled winger with plenty of prestige – the 25-year-old has 35 caps for Brazil Spurs fans are yet to see what he can do on the field of play.

He was introduced on the pitch at Wembley before our win over Manchester United on January 31st having made his deadline day move earlier, but he was not registered to play.

He was then not fit enough to make the squad for Sundays draw at Liverpool, and he is ineligible for the FA Cup replay against Newport County on Wednesday evening, as he was not a Spurs player for the original match.

So Moura could have a nice baptism of fire instead make hisdebut in the most important game of the year for many fans – the North London derby, at home to Arsenal.

We face the Gunners at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime – the biggest possible stage, if it occurs, for Moura to make his bow.
