Harry Kane and Ryan Mason have taken to social media to send touching goodbye messages to Erik Lamela and to wish the Argentine luck in his new adventure in Spain.
Tottenham confirmed on Monday that Lamela had joined Sevilla as part of a deal to bring Brayn Gil to North London.
The 29-year-old’s departure signals the end of an era at Spurs, with the former Roma man being the last of the ‘magnificent seven’ bought with the Gareth Bale money in 2013.
Lamela thanked the Spurs fans for their support over the last eight years and insisted that the club will always have a special place in his heart.
While the attacking midfielder split opinion among the Tottenham faithful, many admitted that they were sad to see him go.
Kane and Mason have now also joined in the tributes, with the striker and the former midfielder admitting that it was a pleasure playing alongside ‘Coco’.
