Tottenham confirmed the signing of Steaua Bucharest defender Vlad Chiriches on Friday with terms and fee to be confirmed. A statement on the club’s official website goes on to read.
‘The centre-back joined Steaua from Pandurii Targu Jiu, making his debut in July 2011 before helping them to the Romanian Liga I championship last year.
‘The 23-year-old made a total of 62 appearances during his stay in the Romanian capital, scoring four times, and his impressive appearances at club level have seen him capped on 19 occasions so far by the Romania national team.’
Vlad has been linked with a move to the club for some time now but after a bizarre intervention from Steaua’s jailed owner, the deal looked dead. However, we’ve got it in before the window so welcome to the club Mr Chiriches.
Are we all happy with the acquisition?
