Mauricio Pochettino has continued to prune his Tottenham squad by allowing Benjamin Stambouli to join Paris St Germain on a five-year contract.
The 24-year-old follows Paulinho, Lewis Holtby, Etienne Capoue and Younes Kaboul in leaving White Hart Lane this summer, with the club making appromxmately £30million from their departures.
Spurs have only signed Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld since the end of last season as Pochettino attempts to put together a squad high on quality rather than quantity.
Stambouli only joined Spurs from Montpellier last summer and made 25 appearances in all competitions for the club.
He said: “I am delighted and very proud to become a member of the Paris St Germain family. I wasn’t necessarily planning to leave the Premier League after one year, but when a club the size of Paris St Germain calls you, it makes your choice a lot easier.
“That’s the moment when you can experience the power of attraction surrounding this club. I will now focus on my preparation.”
Spurs are 2.37 to pick up more than 63 points in the 2015/16 season and 15.00 to beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in their opening Premier League match of the season on 8th August.
Meanwhile, PSG are 1.14 to win the France Ligue 1 title in 2015/16.
