Tottenham have sold midfielder Mousa Dembele to Chinese Super League aspect Guangzhou R&F for £11m.
Dembele 31, was due to be out of contract in the summer but will seal a move after international clearance.
He had flown to China to join Beijing Guoan but complications with the deal saw Guangzhou move for the Belgium international.
I go with an unbelievable feeling and a certain love for the club," said Dembele. "It has been very special."
Sometimes you separate in a bad way but i do not feel it in a very bad way. everyone has been positive with me and has wished me luck and happiness. "The club always treated me fairly.
It has been an unbelievable experience for me and i can always remember it."
A large pay rise and playing in a less physical league are believed to be behind Dembele's call to go away, while Tottenham are trying to trim the squad.
Dembele joined Tottenham for £15m from Fulham in 2012 and made 250 appearances but has only played 13 times this season.
