Your whistle-stop guide to the latest Premier League arrivals

Name: Etienee Capoue

Age: 25

Position: Midfielder

Signed from: Toulouse

Fee: Undisclosed (reported £8.6m)

Did you know?
Last season Capoue picked up 17 yellow cards in 41 matches, so don’t expect him to be ever-present this season.

What’s the deal?
After a proposed move to Cardiff broke down earlier this summer, Spurs have swooped to snap up the France international, who has been capped seven times by his country.

He’s essentially a defensive midfield upgrade on Tom Huddlestone, who has left to join Hull.

What do they say?

“It’s the best club to continue my career.”
