Jan Vertonghen is delighted to be joined at Tottenham by fellow Belgian Moussa Dembele.

The pair signed for Spurs during the summer market.

"It's wonderful. I've known Moussa since I was eleven, then we played together for Germinal Beerschot. We always keep in touch.

"Moussa was taken as the successor at Tottenham for Luka Modric and I'm sure he can fill that role. He is one of the best players.

"Moussa claims the ball, holding it and passes it well. He can help fans forget Modric."
