Gylfi Sigurdsson has backed Andre Villas-Boas to be a success in his new role as Tottenham manager after the Iceland midfielder completed his transfer to White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

Speculation surrounding Sigurdsson's future came to an end when Spurs confirmed that they had signed the 22-year-old from Hoffenheim on a reported five-year deal. The midfielder, who impressed during his loan spell at Swansea last term, becomes Villas-Boas' first signing since he was appointed as Harry Redknapp's successor earlier this week.

Sigurdsson is confident the club's future will be bright under the 34-year-old, and he told Icelandic website "I like him and the ideas he has. He has faith in me and I'm looking forward to working under his leadership."
