The pair had a year together at Les Gones before the goalkeeper – Tottenham’s newly appointed captain – moved to England in 2012. “He is a very nice person and a good captain,” the forward said. “He has his fighting spirit and his winning spirit and helps the younger players. He is a good leader.” Spurs have been on the lookout for a new striker for some time, with Friday’s sale of Roberto Soldado to Villarreal and Emmanuel Adebayor not being given a squad number for the new season leaving Harry Kane as the only senior striker on the north London club’s books.
