Tottenham’s Mousa Dembélé joins Guangzhou R&F for £11m

Tottenham have confirmed the £11m departure of Mousa Dembélé – a player that the manager, Mauricio Pochettino, describes as a “genius” and one the club’s supporters held dear during his six and a half years with them – to Guangzhou R&F in the Chinese Super League.

Dembélé, 31, has long considered China as his next destination and he thought that a deal had been agreed for him to join Beijing Guoan last summer only for nothing to materialise. This time, Spurs have been happy to take the money for a player who had six months to run on his contract, no desire to sign a new one and well-documented fitness issues.
