Harry Kane has now taken to Twitter to send a message to Dele Alli following the announcement that the attacking midfielder has left Tottenham Hotspur to join Everton, writes the TBR.
Dele became one of the last players to move during the January transfer window. He had previously fallen out of favour under Antonio Conte in North London.
Unfortunately, the 25-year-old has not been at his best for some time. And Conte became the latest in a lengthy list of Spurs managers who failed to find a way to get the best out of the England international.
It looks to be a smart move for all parties. Everton have reportedly taken Dele on an initial free transfer. However, the fee could rise to around £40 million depending on various bonuses. The first £10 million will be paid to Tottenham once the former MK Dons man plays 20 times for the Toffees.
The offer for Dele reportedly came as a surprise to Tottenham. But it appears to be the right move for all concerned. The hope is now that Dele can rediscover the magic that made him one of the world’s best in his position during his first couple of years at White Hart Lane.
And Kane has now sent a message of his own to Dele. The striker wished the Everton signing well following the announcement.
Good luck on your next chapter @dele_official. We’ve had some great memories together over the past 7 years. Thank you for everything you have given me and the club! See you soon 💙 pic.twitter.com/XCuQVViydI

It is alarming just how far Dele’s stock has fallen over the last few years. Conte’s arrival almost appeared to be something of a last throw of the dice for his time at Spurs.
Obviously, Tottenham will be wary of Dele being a huge success elsewhere. But most associated with the club will still be delighted if he does do well at Everton now that he has moved on.
