A versatile performer, Etienne Capoue had caught the eye of many European clubs, but it was Spurs who stuck their toe in the water with the French international in the summer of 2013 to bring him to White Hart Lane.

Capoue's age and ability made him a viable option for Tottenham even though he cost 9 million, as his ability to play as a midfielder and a central defender would come in handy when the club suffered injuries or suspensions.   Having already won seven senior caps as well as caps at every youth stage, Capoue added to an already talented squad with the aim of pressing for a Champions League place.

Tottenham saw off late competition for his services from Atletico Madrid, but having looked a good man to have to protect in front of your back four in his first few games, he got a bad injury in the match at Arsenal and was missing for a good few weeks.  By the time he was fit again, there was a new Head Coach in place, Tim Sherwood, who didn't seem to fancy him and rumours he would leave in the January transfer window circulated, but he was there at the close of the window and was given the challenge to prove he was worth a place in the team.  Came on as a sub against Manchester City at home to score his first goal for the club. 

Failed to get any significant playing time in 2014-15 under Mauricio Pochettino and left to join Watford in the summer of 2015 for a club record fee for the Hertfordshire club.
