The France international had been the subject of transfer negotiations for several weeks before finally completing a £9.4million move to White Hart Lane from Ligue 1 side Toulouse last Thursday.

The 25-year-old made his first appearance in a Spurs shirt as a second-half substitute in Sunday's 1-0 Premier League win at Crystal Palace.

Speaking after the game, Capoue said the north London outfit is the perfect club for him to join at this stage of his career.

"I'm feeling great. I knew England was a great league and I saw that in my very first match," Capoue told L'Equipe.

"There is a lot of intensity. My team-mates helped me a lot to feel at ease. Moreover we started with a win, which is perfect.

"I needed to go abroad and I have been lucky to join the best league in the world. England, with the atmosphere and fans very close to the pitch, is what any footballer dreams of.

"I get that at Tottenham, which is the perfect club to reach a new level in my career."
