"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.

Stambouli, whose only Tottenham goal came in a Europa League match against Partizan Belgrade in November, will join his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp in New Jersey.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said a return to France would help "rediscover a player who was full of promise when he was playing in Ligue 1".

Stambouli becomes the latest midfielder to leave Spurs this summer, following the likes of Paulinho, Lewis Holtby and Etienne Capoue out the exit door.
