Jamie O'Hara is backing new Tottenham signing Giovani dos Santos to make a big Premiership impact.

"I've been rooming with Gio and he's a great lad," O'Hara told the Spurs website from their Spain preseason camp.

"We've had a real laugh already and I think we'll become close friends.

"He's always smiling, laughing, having a joke and he's got a heart of gold - he'll help you out with anything.

"His English is getting better and better and he's a great guy to be around. The lads have all taken to him well and he'll be a great player to have around."
