Benjamin Stambouli has been pictured signing his contract at Tottenham Hotspur.

Benjamin Stambouli has been pictured signing his Tottenham Hotspur contract ahead of his proposed move to White Hart Lane.

The French defensive midfielder is set to be unveiled as a deadline day transfer for Spurs and he has been photographed putting pen to paper today.

When the transfer is announced he is expected to sign in a £4.7 million from Montpellier.

The 24-year-old is a low profile addition, but the feeling is that he could be an excellent transfer and a shrewd purchase from Mauricio Pochettino.

Stambouli is touted as one of the best midfielders in Ligue 1 and, at the price which is cheap in the current market, he could be one of the bargains of the summer.

A tough tackling and robust player, he has the attributes suited to being a success in the Premier League and he is also technically adept enough to fit in with Pochettino’s demanding style of play. 

He has been identified as a cheap alternative for Morgan Schneiderlin, whose proposed deal from Southampton is now off the cards.
