Joining the club at a time of transition, the Frenchman will add some bite to a midfield that has been startlingly light, but without any further ado, below are ten facts that Spurs fans will want to know about their new signing.
10. Primarily a defensive midfielder, Stambouli was born in Marseille but rose up through the youth ranks at Montpellier after joining the Ligue 1 side aged 14.
9. He was a part of the youth team that was victorious in the 2009 Gambardella Cup, a competition held to showcase the talents of under-19s in France.
8. He was a part of the side that won the Ligue 1 title in 2012 and has made over 100 appearances for the club.
7. His father currently works for fellow Ligue 1 giants Marseille, his uncle previously coached Monaco and his grandfather managed both clubs, meaning he comes from a long line of footballers.
6. Despite being a defensive midfielder by trade, he has often played in the centre of defence and will likely be expected to fill in there from time to time under Mauricio Pochettino.
