Lamela flew out from Rome yesterday for London.
"I am proud to have played for Roma and hope one day to return," he told ANSA.
"Perhaps I wasn't able to express all I could've and wanted to do here. It's also true that there was something missing for the whole team.
"I hope this season will go better. I saw the lads are hungry to do well and are very concentrated. I wish the club, the Coach and my teammates to go as far as possible.
"As for myself, now I hope to do well with Tottenham in London. I am ready. I want to thank and salute the fans who always behaved well with me. I embrace them all. They will always be in my heart."
