Mousa Dembele cannot wait to get started at Tottenham after joining the north London club from Fulham in a move which cast further doubt on the future of Rafael van der Vaart.

Spurs and Fulham confirmed the transfer of Dembele for a fee understood to be in the region of £15million after the player passed a medical and agreed a five-year contract.

"I'm happy to join Spurs. It's a fantastic club," the 25-year-old Belgium midfielder said on www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
