Tottenham have agreed to sell Mousa Dembele to Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F for an undisclosed fee.

No financial details of the deal were disclosed, but British media reported that Guangzhou had paid 11 million pounds for the 31-year-old, who was out of contract at the end of the season.

Dembele had not played for Tottenham since November due to an ankle injury on his right leg.

During that time, he scored 10 goals and registered 12 assists, becoming a key part of Spurs' midfield before and after Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager.

"Mousa has been capped 82 times for Belgium and was part of the Red Devils' squad that finished third at the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation". I go away with an unbelievable feeling and with a certain love for the club.

Bearing that in mind, this company is experiencing top-line progress, as its year-over-year quarterly revenue has grown by 2.40%. Canton Hathaway LLC bought a new stake in shares of CVS Health during the 3rd quarter worth approximately $126,000.

Although the departure brings to a close a good period for Dembele, he is happy to be leaving Tottenham on good terms.

"I always say to him: 'Mousa, when I write my book, you will be one of my genius players that I have been lucky enough to meet", Pochettino said per The Guardian.

"Sometimes you separate in a bad way but I don't feel it in a bad way", Dembele continued. "I don't like to look too much into the future but I see only positive things". They've wished me a lot of luck and happiness.

Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen said: "You have to ask the players who have played against Mousa or with Mousa to get the appreciation he deserves".
