Tottenham transfer news: Spurs in ‘advanced talks’ for £26m deal, Chelsea ‘keeping tabs’ on £10m France international

Tottenham fans will help push new signing Yves Bissouma to the next level if they show him love because he is such an emotional player, according to his dressing room ‘brother’ Gaetan Bong.

When Bissouma first arrived at Brighton in 2018, he barely could construct a sentence in English and it was full-back Bong who took him under his wing and helped him out.

Malian midfielder Bissouma is the third signing for Spurs and arrives with a mixture of excitement and a hint of uncertainty.

According to Bong, the best way for supporters to get the most out of their new addition is to show him plenty of love from the stands.

The now-Nottingham Forest man told the Argus: “You could see after games how he enjoyed himself with the fans. They were singing his name and he loved that.

“He’s sensitive. The more love you give him, the more you get from him. In Brighton, he could find that. It was like a family.

“Last year he stayed because he loved the club but he had too much quality to not try something else.”
