Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc has confirmed that Benjamin Stambouli's move from Tottenham Hotspur to the Ligue 1 side is imminent.

Le Parisien reported on 17 July that the French billionaires had reached an agreement with the North London side to secure the services of the France midfielder for around €8m (£5.6m, $8.6m).

And Blanc has all but confirmed the news, suggesting the deal for the midfielder is just pending a medical.

"Benjamin Stambouli will definitely join us Monday afternoon. He has to pass a medical test and once this is the case he will be with us. He could play on Tuesday against Fiorentina but we need to do collective training before," Blanc said during a press conference, as quoted by Footmercato.

"He followed a normal preparation with his former club, even if he did nothing for two or three days," the 49 year old declared.

The 24-year-old midfielder moved to White Hart Lane on deadline day last summer from Montpellier as part of Mauricio Pochettino's overhaul.

But with academy stars Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb excelling in the midfield during Pochettino's debut campaign, Stambouli struggled to make the impact expected and started just four Premier League games during the whole season.

The France midfielder will follow the footsteps of both central midfielders Paulinho and Etienne Capoue who recently left the club, to join Chinese side Guanzhou and Watford respectively.
