Spurs Sign Striker Soldado

Tottenham have completed the signing of Roberto Soldado from Valencia for a club record fee.

Spurs paid around £26million for the Spaniard, who scored 30 goals in 46 appearances last season.

The Londoners confirmed Soldado's capture through a statement, which read: "We are delighted to confirm the signing of Roberto Soldado from Valencia after the player successfully completed his medical."

Soldado is likewise thrilled with the move.

The 28-year-old told Spurs' official website: "I’m absolutely honoured to be at this club, to wear the shirt that has so much history. I’m hoping that I can score lots of goals to repay the club’s kindness in signing me."

He added: "I’ve come here as a striker to score goals. I always try to achieve more goals in the next season, so that will be my aim, to score as many goals as I can for Spurs next season."

Spurs have shown intent by breaking their transfer record twice in four weeks, with Paulinho's £17million arrival last month bettering the £16million fee they paid for Luka Modric in 2008.
