Mousa Dembele: Tottenham agree £11m deal with Guangzhou R&F

Chinese Super League side, Guangzhou R&F have completed the signing of Tottenham midfielder, Mousa Dembele.

No financial details of the deal were disclosed, but British media reported that Guangzhou had paid 11 million pounds for the 31-year-old, who was out of contract at the end of the season.

He carved out a reputation as one of the Premier League's top midfield players over the years, although was significantly held back by injuries, particularly over the last couple of seasons.

Dembele, who was a part of the Belgium squad that finished third at the World Cup, arrived in England with Fulham in 2010 after joining from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar.

" I go with an unbelievable feeling and a certain love for the club".

His move to R&F, whose coach is the former Yugoslav great Dragan Stojkovic, could be officially announced as soon as Thursday, the club source said on condition of anonymity. I've always had good experience here.

Moussa Sissoko limped off in the first half of Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United with a groin problem, with Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama already sidelined, leaving Harry Winks as the only available senior central midfielder. You always feel this, because you have a long period at a club, you have a lot of love for the club, but sometimes you separate in a bad way and I don't feel that way.

"Everyone has been positive with me and has wished me luck and happiness. The club is part of my family now, 100 per cent".

Speaking in 2017, Pochettino said of the player: "I always say to him: 'Mousa, when I write my book, you will be one of my genius players that I have been lucky enough to meet.' One was Maradona; also Ronaldinho, Okocha and Iván de la Peña - he was a genius, too - and then Mousa".
