Lucas, however, seems thrilled to have joined Spurs based on the club's announcement video, which was posted on Twitter this evening. It's a big challenge for me, a new chapter of my life.

Neymar said he is saddened by Lucas Moura's imminent move to Tottenham, insisting his underused Brazilian counterpart should not be allowed to leave Paris Saint-Germain.

Moura was made available for transfer this month after falling out-of-favour under Unai Emery in France this season with the winger failing to start a single Ligue 1 game this campaign.

"He can bring different qualities to the squad, he's an experienced player - young, but with a lot of experience at a big club like PSG", Pochettino said. Yes, it's very painful but I think Juan, when we signed him, we believed him to be a future, potential top player and of course he's going to play now.

Moura joined from Paris St Germain for an initial fee of £25million on Tuesday and the Brazilian forward could play against Liverpool this weekend. "And I will win with my team". Since taking charge at White Hart Lane in 2014, he has gradually built Spurs into a side that now expects rather than hopes for Champions League football.

It was an electric touch to the Pelicans' hottest stretch of the season, polishing off their seventh in over the past eight games. A few weeks ago, they had to see the Saints lose a playoff game in the most gut-wrenching fashion possible .

Lucas's arrival is particularly beneficial to Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino as he is eligible to play in the Champions League, having not appeared for PSG in Europe's elite club competition this season.

"The most important thing is to play", said Lucas.

Linked with a January move, Moura had been gaining interest from a number of European clubs, such as Valencia and Real Betis. It's a pleasure for me to play for Tottenham.

His comments show the ambition of the player and that is good to hear from a new signing. It's really good for me. But for me it's very painful because that situation happened and it looks like we don't have a plan you know.
