Finally, we can say it: Tottenham Hotspur have signed Lucas Moura!

The Brazilian global is said that a "good friend" was under-used by PSG, and eventually allowed to join the North London side. Here, WhoScored.com review his stats to see just what he'll offer Mauricio Pochettino in the Premier League...

PSG were keen to offload Lucas this month following a summer of heavy spending, which notably saw Neymar signed from Barcelona.

Lucas joined PSG from Sao Paulo in January 2013 for a reported £38m and went on to win four league titles and make 229 appearances in all competitions, scoring 46 times and setting up a further 43.

Though he tallied a record 12 Ligue 1 goals last season, Lucas found himself being marginalized this season, and agreed to terms with Spurs two days ago.

Justice Department Moves to Dismiss Corruption Case Against Menendez
After the judge's ruling last week, Menendez flashed what has become an increasingly confident and defiant side about the case. Earlier this month, the Department of Justice said it wanted to retry Menendez (D-N.J.) on political corruption charges.

"They beat me and I play football". He is a friend, he is someone with a lot of quality, and here he could have been used a lot more, I am sure of it.

The north London club confirmed the deal on Wednesday with a video of Moura shaking hands with Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son.

Going from playing 2,426 minutes in 37 games, including 29 starts last season, to 78 minutes spread across just five games, Lucas' future at PSG had been in doubt throughout the January transfer window.

Strong at creating chances, particularly from set pieces, and quick on the counter, Moura's a hybrid of Tottenham's most utilised wide pair this season in some ways, and in that sense capable of covering for the absence of either.
