Saha is now with his fifth Premier League club

New Tottenham signing Louis Saha has claimed he has joined "the most dynamic and exciting team in the country" after his surprise deadline-day move.

The French striker moved to White Hart Lane on a free transfer from Everton.

"I am not going to step down. I have a big challenge ahead, which is why I felt it was right to go," said Saha.

He trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday and could make his Spurs debut against Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday.

Saha signed an 18-month deal with Harry Redknapp's side late on Tuesday after a three-year spell at Goodison Park which brought him 35 goals in 115 appearances.

And the French international thanked the Toffees for helping him to salvage his career after an injury-ravaged spell at Manchester United.

Saha said: "I have to say thank you to Everton and particularly [manager] David Moyes because they helped me when I really needed it and I will never forget that.

"Leaving a great club like Everton is always a bit sad, but things come to an end, and I also want to say thanks to the supporters as there have been good times and bad times but I have always felt supported and loved.

"Playing with those players, with all our spirit, was a pleasure. Everton is a family club. There is a great spirit and it always felt like home. It is a very honest place and people are always straight with you."
