Transfer deadline day: Tottenham sign Benjamin Stambouli

Tottenham have signed defensive midfielder Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old is a former France Under-21 international who came through the ranks of the French club, making 129 appearances and scoring four goals.

He was part of the Montpellier side that won the Ligue 1 title in 2012.

Stambouli is Tottenham's sixth transfer window signing after Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Eric Dier, Federico Fazio and DeAndre Yedlin, who will join in 2015.

Spurs have also agreed a deadline-day deal to send midfielder Lewis Holtby to German club Hamburg on loan, while Zeki Fryers has joined Crystal Palace.
