Mousa Dembele

Tottenham confirmed that Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele is finally off to China after spending nearly seven years at the club.

The former Fulham star was one of the best midfielders in the game when fit, but recent seasons have seen him struggle to remain injury-free.

The Belgian hasn’t played for us since injuring his ankle in November, and it is a bit of a loss seeing Dembele leave now.

The 31-year-old signed for Guangzhou R&F and spoke about his time with Spurs over the years. Dembele enjoyed his time at Spurs with some other Belgians such as Nacer Chadli, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

The 31-year-old got emotional later on during the video as Jan Vertonghen came to say his goodbyes to the midfield. The pair spoke about their relationship and the fact that they joined the club in the same transfer window.

Spurs have grown from strength to strength under Mauricio Pochettino, and it would have been fantastic if we could have held onto Dembele for a few more years.

The Chinese league will be less strenuous on the body of the Belgian, and hopefully, we see him thrive in one of the fastest growing leagues in the world.

Several Tottenham fans were emotional when learning about Dembele leaving, and here are some of their reactions to the midfield going.
