Club career[edit]

Montpellier[edit]

On 3 March 2010, he signed his first professional contract after agreeing to a three-year deal with Montpellier.[4] During the 2011/12 season, Stambouli played 26 league games as Montpellier won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in the club's history. During the 2013/14 season, Stambouli played 37 out of Montpellier's 38 league games and was even promoted to position of vice-captain behind Brazilian Hilton.[5]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

On 1 September 2014 it was confirmed that Stambouli had signed for Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee. He scored his first goal for the club in a Europa League match against Partizan Belgrade on 27 November, following up a shot from Roberto Soldado, which had rebounded off of the post. [6]

International career[edit]

He played three games for the French U-21 team during the UEFA U-21 Championship.
