Spurs announce Dembele capture


After the transfer window kicked into life for Spurs last night in the new post-Modric era, we have now completed our first signing since the Croatian left White Hart Lane.

The news broke last night that Fulham midfielder Moussa Dembele was close to be completing a move to Tottenham when manager Martin Jol confirmed that a bid had been accepted by Fulham for the player and the Belgium international was reported as undergoing his medical earlier on today.

The signing has now been confirmed on the official Tottenham Hotspur website:  “We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Fulham for the transfer of Moussa Dembele”.

Details on the deal have not been disclosed yet but the transfer fee is reported as being in the region of £15m, although this has yet to be confirmed by either club.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Wow hardly Moutinho, I guess it's to be expected from spurs, lose you star player and replace him with a nobody, no offence to dembele, hope he proves me wrong but hope we make some signings, that will make a difference to our play like modders the rat used to.

  2. Macca, what do you mean a 'nobody'? Just cos he didn't come from Real or Man Utd that doesn't mean he cannot play. He won the Dutch title with AZ and he's coming off the back of a quality season with Fulham. He knows Vetonghen from the Belgian squad so will slot in a lot easier. He scores more than Modric and if we get Lloris in for around £13mil we'll have 2 top quality players in who want to play for us for the price of one disgruntled player who was better moved on than spending another season sulking. Also he's used to the Prem, unlike Moutinho, and cost a lot less than he would. Like it or not, Spurs cannot afford to spend as much on players as Chelsea or Man City and we have to keep a decent financial model. Call Levy what you will but he does decent business for Spurs most of the time and I think by Xmas you'll have changed your tune about Dembele.

  3. macca? you cant call our new signing a nobody and then say " no offence" our new signing is the main reason AZ won the dutch league and cause many upset's for Fulham,, are you 12 ?

    have a word with yourself son….

    • I mean no disrespect to Dembele , im sure he is a nice guy and a good footballer but to me he is a nobody, im entiltled to my own opinion. We were never linked to signing him until the 11th hour and if you think he is a comparable signing to rat face luka then that is your opinion , but its an opinion i dont share. Yeah he won the dutch league with AZ, whoopy. When the transfer window slams shut and if there are no other additions to the squad in that area and it becomes apparant that Dembele is the direct replacement for Luka, as a spurs fan, are you going to be happy with that ???????????
