Spurs winger Iago Falque has joined Serie A outfit Genoa on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old winger made 11 appearances for Tottenham after signign from Juventus in 2012, following an initial loan spell.

Vigo-born Falque had been involved in Mauricio Pochettino's plans in pre-season after spending last term on loan at La Liga side Rayo Vallecano.

With Erik Lamela back in the fold and Jay Rodriguez being targetted by Spurs, opportunities for the Spanish youth cap at White Hart Lane were likely to be few and far between.
