Video prompts some Spurs fans to call for ex-player’s return – And it isn’t Gareth Bale

It has been almost six months to the day since Tottenham sold Mousa Dembele to Chinese Super League team Guangzhou R&F (BBC).

Spurs were paid £11m for the midfield man, despite the fact that he had just six months left on his contract at the time.

The 31-year-old would have more than likely left on a free this summer anyway, especially as his injuries began to mount up in a Lilywhite shirt.

Dembele joined for £15m from Fulham back in 2012 and went on top make a whopping 250 appearances for Tottenham (BBC).

However, with it being Dembele’s birthday today, Spurs decided to post a video tribute to the old fan favourite, prompting some supporters to wish for his return to North London.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Really naive of some fans if they think Dembele is going to come back to Spurs as a player. Not only was he aging but in all honesty he is really past his absolute best, and probably not up to the demands of a full schedule in the premiership and Europe. Now that Spurs have bought Ndombele, with Winks, Sissoko,Dier and Wanyama as alternative choices why exactly would it make any sense to go back for Dembele again? Having been impressed that Spurs went out to get Ndombele I have to admit I am massively underwhelmed with Tottenhams lack of additions since, and not just a little frustrated and disappointed with the way things appear to be panning out. So many names mentioned in the last couple of months, but yet again it seems as so oft that it is little more than overheated air brought about by wayward and inaccurate speculation. For me if Levy do not make a minimum of four key signings over the summer (and that certainly doesn’t include the loan-back Leeds bound Jack Clarke) then he is letting the club and its following down. Once again Levy’s reticence in the transfer market could cost the club dearly in terms of genuine and credible ambition and that is surely going to be totally for Pochettino moving forward.
