thumbnail Hello,

The Fulham star is moving across London to join up with Tottenham.

Tottenham has confirmed the signing of Mousa Dembele from Fulham for around 15 million pounds.

Spurs made a bid on Tuesday to trigger a release clause in Dembele’s contract and the midfielder has now agreed personal terms and passed a two-part medical.

Tottenham announced the transfer on its official Twitter account, with Dembele considered by manager Andre Villas-Boas as a replacement for Luka Modric, who signed for Real Madrid in Monday in a 33.2m pound deal.

Dembele cost Fulham 5m pounds when he signed from AZ Alkmaar in 2010 and caught the eye of leading clubs across Europe after converting to a central midfield role during last season.

Fulham had announced on Tuesday night that Dembele was heading to White Hart Lane after he was left out of the Cottagers' 1-0 League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Dembele revealed over the weekend that he wanted to “go to the top”, having caught the eye with a man-of-the-match performance against Manchester United on Saturday.
