Stambouli swaps one Capital for another

Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli has joined French champions Paris St-Germain on a five-year deal for a fee reported to be about £6m.

The former France Under-21 player made just 12 appearances for Spurs after joining from Montpellier in September.

Stambouli, 24, was in the Montpellier squad that won the 2012 Ligue 1 title.

“France is going to rediscover a player that was full of promise when he was playing in Ligue 1,” said PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

In total, Stambouli made 129 appearances for Montpellier before making the move to the Premier League.

“I wasn’t necessarily planning to leave the Premier League after one year but when a club with the dimension of Paris St-Germain calls you, it makes your choice a lot easier,” he said.

Editor’s Note: So Daniel Levy has made another profit on a player – how does this man do it. Obviously PSG have seen something that Spurs don’t. Knowing our luck he’ll go on to win the Champions League and Euro 2016 next season. Then again if you were faced with a choice of either Paris or Watford it’s not too much of a difficult decision now is this. So another £6m in the coffers for another fringe player, let’s hope there’s a big name or two soon to join to fill the gaps.
