Lucas Moura tells fans: I'm so excited to play for Spurs

Lucas Moura is excited about his move to Tottenham.

Moura, who has penned a five-and-a-half year deal and will wear the No 27 shirt, was introduced to Spurs supporters at Wembley as he saw his new team-mates defeat Manchester United on Wednesday night.

"I am so happy to be here," Moura said via a short video on Tottenham's snapchat account. "It will be a pleasure to play for Tottenham. It's a big challenge for me, a new chapter of my life.

"I'm so excited to play, to get to know the new stadium, the fans and I am sure we will do big things together."

The French side paid tribute to the Brazilian after his departure was confirmed.

"He is a player who will always be remembered with affection by the fans," PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi said. "He always gave his best to help the team win. The club enabled him to reach Europe's top level & we shared some beautiful moments.

"I want to thank him for his five years with us. As he leaves for England, we wish him every success as his career continues."
