After weeks of speculation, Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Roberto Soldado from Valencia. A statement of the club’s official website reads.

‘We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Valencia for the transfer of Roberto Soldado subject to medical.

‘The striker netted 80 times in 146 appearances during his time at the Mestalla who he joined from Getafe in 2010, after impressing with a tally of 29 goals in 60 league appearances.’

You can read the full statement here but the striker is clearly a welcome addition to the squad. Yes, it’s subject to a medical but it’s rare for Spurs to announce anything officially if there are any concerns.

So we welcome Roberto to the club while wondering if his arrival holds any ramifications for our existing strikers – particularly Emmanuel Adebayor. Is Soldado the end of the story or will there be more changes in the front line before this transfer window comes to an end?

  1. Happy with the fact we have signed a striker. I think we’ve done very good business so far (Caulker sale aside). However, I stand by what I said the other day, £26 million on a 28 year old that has never played outside Spain is a massive gamble. One I’m happy with though, shows Levy has faith in AVB.
    Next up, a centre half!!

  2. massive signing for us, could easily be playing champions league football so shows he’s got a good attitude and has liked what he’s heard from levy/avb. hopefully this will be the 25/30 goal a season striker we’ve needed since berbatov left

  3. roberto soldado is a gr8 inclusion to our squared,so now it set way for Adebayor to leave now cos he is nt all trust striker.we need strikers who can bang in goals abt 24 in a season and soldado has a trade mark for that so is a plus
    The selling of steve caulker also another plus ,although he might be good defender buh we all know now currently he wil be 5th defender in spurs scale of prefence in defensive line.
