Last updated on .From the section Football
Tottenham have completed the signing of Belgium international winger Nacer Chadli from Dutch club FC Twente.
Spurs have agreed an undisclosed fee, thought to be about £7m, for the 23-year-old, who has won 14 caps.
Chadli is with Spurs in Hong Kong for the Asia Cup, and having agreed terms and passed a medical, could make his debut against Monaco on 3 August.
He joined FC Twente from AGOVV Apeldoorn in 2010 and played 106 times for the club, scoring 31 goals.
Two of those strikes came in Champions League matches against Spurs in the 2010-11 season.
Chadli becomes the third Belgian player at White Hart Lane, alongside Mousa Dembele and
The London club have also sealed the £17m capture of Brazilian international midfielder Paulinho during the close season.
I want Bendtner. Lets discuss business.
tottenham boys ignore the trolls.
those of us who know our football know exactly who this guy is... infact he scored against us for FC Twente in the CL a few seasons ago.
at age 23 this is a very astute signing. the squad is looking fantastic now. so many options... if we can just get that elusive top striker then we will have a very good season.
And this tiny club pushed you to the last game of the season twice in a row despite paying 40m a year less in wages and not having a "real" striker. Worrying times.
This is the most competitive spurs squad I have seen in my lifetime and don't just mean first team.
If we can get Soldado, then we would definitely mean business.
This signing gives AVB options, there are times when Bale is more of a force NOT playing in his usual position, but during those times they still need wide men. Then there are injuries, and suspensions when the fools they call ref's book Bale for diving when cameras prove he did not dive.
How about the multiple times AVB has said that Bale is not for sale, regardless of the offer, as Levy has promised him? Real Madrid saying that they're not trying to buy him now because we refuse to even speak to them about him? He also came out recently saying that he learnt a lot from AVB last season and is looking forward to learning more from him this season. Try harder.
8 seasons of epic failure set to continue for woolwich wanderers !
Chadli is a very good signing, someone who can play on either flank and give Lennon the competition he needs.
I have 36 yrs watching the league so by your definition that makes me at least 1 & 1/2 times smarter than you.
Woolwich wanderers "think through signings" - what like selling their only decent player RVP and paying millions for Chumkh ?
Delusional would be an over statement !
But at least you've got a career as a comedian if the wumming doesn't pan out . . . . .
Errrrrr - we have !
Man U Man C Spurs Chelsea Liverpool Swansea Wigan & Birmingham
All have been MORE SUCCESSFUL than woolwich wanderers in last 8 seasons.
Meet the ONLY fan who didn't cos I've read at least 10,000 posts about finishing 4th . . .
As for history, good point, 1st English team to win in Europe & do
"The Double" is SPURS.
woolwich wanderers = always 2nd to achieve !
