Nacer Chadli Q&A

23 May 2017
The versatile attacking player left Spurs in August 2016 to join the Baggies in what the Club confirmed was its biggest deal of the summer.
Chadli’s career began at AGOVV Apeldoorn in Holland where he remained for three years before earning a move to FC Twente in 2010.
He scored 31 times for FC Twente in 106 appearances for the club between 2010 and 2013.
Chadli joined Spurs from the Dutch club for a fee reported to be around £7m and made his Premier League debut in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The Belgian made over 100 appearances for Spurs and scored 25 times.
He made his international debut for Morocco in a friendly against Northern Ireland in Belfast in 2010 and was named man of the match. However, in 2011, Chadli announced his intention to represent Belgium. The decision was permitted because he had not yet played in a competitive match for Morocco and duly went on to make his debut for Belgium against Finland.
At the start of the 2015/16 season Chadli had 32 caps and four goals for Belgium but had lost his international place before arriving at Albion.
Head Coach Tony Pulis promised him he would regain his spot if he joined Albion - and that proved a promise made good when Chadli's brilliant early form was rewarded with a recall by Belgium in October.
