Last updated on .From the section Football
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.
