New Tottenham signing Ryan Nelsen admits it is a strange feeling training alongside players who he used to kick for a living.

Nelsen, 34, completed his surprise move to north London on Thursday after having his contract cancelled by Blackburn.

"It's a wee bit weird at the moment," Nelsen said after his first day's training at Tottenham's Chigwell base. "I have been trying to kick most of the guys in that dressing room for the last few years. But I am obviously really excited and delighted at the opportunity. Looking from afar it appeared such an exciting place to be so to be amongst it now is pretty cool.""
