Paris Saint-Germain have announced the signing of midfielder Benjamin Stambouli from Tottenham, with the Frenchman signing a five-year deal.
The midfielder made the move back to Ligue 1 after failing to make an impact in the one season he spent in the EPL, after joining Tottenham from Montpellier for £4.7 million.
PSG got the French midfielder for £6 million and with Blanc confirming the deal on Sunday, they have control of him till 2020.
“I am delighted and very proud to become a member of the Paris Saint-Germain family,” Stambouli told the club’s official website.
“I wasn’t necessarily planning to leave the Premier League after one year but when a club with the dimension of Paris Saint-Germain calls you, it makes your choice a lot easier!
“That’s the moment when you can experience the power of attraction surrounding this club. I will now focus on my preparation. It will be important to take advantage of the friendly games that we still have to play in the US to find my marks on the pitch.”
“It is with a great pleasure that I welcome Benjamin Stambouli in our club,” added president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi.
“He is a French player who already proved the impact that he can bring to a midfield both athletically and technically. France is going to rediscover a player that was full of promises when he was playing in Ligue 1.
“During our summer tour in North America, Benjamin will have the opportunity to get integrated to the squad and learn to work with our technical staff.”
