Montpellier announced on Thursday that they had agreed a deal with Tottenham for the transfer of the 24-year-old and he has now completed the formalities on a switch to the Premier League.

The former France Under-21 international becomes Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino's sixth signing since he replaced Tim Sherwood in the close season, after Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Eric Dier, DeAndre Yedlin and Federico Fazio also joined the London club.


Maxime Dupuis, “Benjamin Stambouli is a young and promising player, able to play central defender or midfielder (even if he prefers to play in midfield). Strong technically, he is sometimes called ‘little Laurent Blanc’. However, I am not sure he has the physical strength for the Premier League. But he is a nice prospect. I think Tottenham made a good choice.”
