Tottenham have confirmed that they’ve agreed to sell Mousa Dembele to Chinese club Guangzhou R&F

The Belgium international has only made seven starts in 10 Premier League appearances this season for Spurs due to the strong competition and his own fitness problems.

Dembele has been sidelined since injuring his ankle against Wolves at the beginning of November and was expected to leave Spurs this month due to being out contract this summer.

Now London-based club have decided to cash in on Dembele before it’s too late with Chinese Super League side Guangzhou being his preferred destination, despite interest from Beijing Sinobo.

“I’ve always had a good experience here,” Dembele told SpursTV.

“I go away with an unbelievable feeling and with a certain love for the club. The club is part of my family now.”
