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?
