Stambouli set to join Tottenham


Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to a deal to sign former France under-21 midfielder Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier, the French club said on Friday.

“(Stambouli) will travel to London shortly to have a medical and finalize his contract,” Montpellier was quoted as saying in a statement posted on the team’s website.

The 24-year-old would become Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino’s sixth signing since he replaced Tim Sherwood in the offseason, after Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Eric Dier, DeAndre Yedlin and Federico Fazio also joined the London club.
