Stambouli, 24, joined Spurs from Montpellier, but has opted to move on after just one season at White Hart Lane.

Stambouli, who made 25 appearances for Spurs in all competitions, said: " I am delighted and very proud to become a member of the Paris St Germain family.

"I wasn't necessarily planning to leave the Premier League after one year, but when a club the size of Paris St 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."

Stambouli, whose only Tottenham goal came in a Europa League match against Partizan Belgrade in November, will join his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp in New Jersey.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said a return to France would help "rediscover a player who was full of promise when he was playing in Ligue 1".

Stambouli becomes the latest midfielder to leave Spurs this summer, following the likes of Paulinho, L ewis Holtby and Etienne Capoue out the exit door.
