Tottenham Hotspur has made its first signing in two years after they acquired the services of Tanguy Ndombele.

The 22-year-old joins the North London side from French Ligue 1 club Lyon, and he’s excited and cannot wait to get started.

“I am very happy to be here and looking forward to playing in the new stadium,” he told the team’s official website.

“It’s very simple for me – Spurs are in the top four teams right now in England.”

“I believe that my style of play is well suited to English football and Tottenham are giving me the opportunity to show that, so I am extremely happy to be here,” he said.

“For me, it’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid to play in the Premier League. Now I can make that dream come true right here.”

He explained his excitement: “I can’t wait, I’m excited at being able to play in the Premier League and I’m hoping that we can achieve great things with the team.”

“I hope to be able to bring what I know I can do – to do my bit for the team.”

“The squad works really well together so I hope to start well, integrate, settle into the group and then continue in the same way. To win silverware, that’s also why I am here,” he said.

“For me, I hope we can win the Champions League, just like everyone does.”
