With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Tottenham confirm Soldado deal.
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed on their official website that they’ve agreed a deal with Valencia to buy striker Roberto Soldado.
The Spanish international has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs in recent weeks with director of football Franco Baldini spotted in Spain holding talks with the La Liga outfit early last week.
The north Londoners have now reached an agreement that will see the 28-year-old move to White Hart Lane subject to him passing a medical. A statement on TottenhamHotspur.com read:
“We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Valencia for the transfer of Roberto Soldado subject to medical.”
Tottenham have failed to disclose to transfer fee but widespread reports suggest they will pay in the region of £26m for the striker, which will be a new club record.
Soldado has a prolific goal-scoring record, netting 80 times in 146 appearances for Valencia since joining from Getafe in 2010. He started out his professional career at Real Madrid and scored 63 goals in 120 appearances for the B side before moving to Osasuna on loan where he scored 11 goals in 30 games.
His impressive form in front of goal has seen him break into the Spanish international team, where he’s scored 6 goals in his 11 caps so far, and he took part in this summers Confederation Cup where Spain lost in the final to Brazil.
the striker is certain to provide boss Andre Villas-Boas with a potent goal threat up front next season and Spurs fans will be hoping he’s the missing piece that will finally see them break into the top four next season.
