Etienne Capoue played for France in a friendly against Belgium on Wednesday and talked to the press for a bit after the match. French football journalist Julien Laurens was kind enough to tweet out some quotes from the soon-to-be Tottenham Hotspur midfielder.
Just seen Capoue: "There are only some paperwork to sign now. I will be at the training ground tomorrow. Tottenham is a super club...1/2— Julien Laurens (@LaurensJulien) August 14, 2013
Capoue: "... Its the best club to continue my career. It should be official very quickly now." 2/2— Julien Laurens (@LaurensJulien) August 14, 2013
This is not surprising news following Hugo Lloris' comments that a move was close for Capoue. Hopefully everything goes smoothly at Enfield on Thursday and we get an announcement.
With Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore's moves already announced and Scott Parker on the way out, it would be nice if Capoue were available off the bench for Spurs against Crystal Palace.
