The midfielder left Tottenham Hotspur at the end of his contract but has quickly found a new club.

Aalborg have signed former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Filip Lesniak on a free transfer, with the Danish side confirming the news on their official website on Tuesday morning.

The 21-year-old only made his first-team debut for Spurs last season, coming off the bench against Leicester City and also being included in the match day squad against Hull City on the final weekend of the campaign.

But that was not enough to earn him a new contract in North London and, after turning out in a post-season friendly against Kitchee, the young Slovakian was released.

Now he has found a new home in Denmark and he will be hoping to build on his late breakthrough at White Hart Lane to become an integral player for Aalborg.

At 21, Lesniak will want to be playing week in, week out, something that would not have happened if he had remained at Tottenham.

Now he has  the chance to fulfil his potential and Spurs fans may watch his progress and wonder if one day he could return to the club to complete his unfinished business.

Tottenham are now focusing on which new players to sign, after waving goodbye to some fringe options earlier this summer.

Their fans may be getting worried after seeing Everton act swiftly and effectively to secure the signings that can take them to the next level in 2018 and beyond.

Now it is Tottenham's turn to follow suit, and they cannot wait too long or risk missing out on their ideal summer targets.
