Tottenham Hotspur reach agreement for Vlad Chiricheș

Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they've reached an agreement with Steaua Bucharest over the signing of Vlad Chiricheș.

Tottenham Hotspur have announced on their website that an agreement has been reached with Steaua Bucharest for the signing of their centre-back Vlad Chiricheș, as their impressively productive transfer campaign continues. Spurs have reportedly paid around £8.5 million to bring the highly-rated defender to White Hart Lane.

Despite being only 23, Chiricheș has already been capped by Romania 19 times, and was a regular as Steaua won the Romanian league title last season. Capable on the ball as well as defensively, he could prove to be a great long-term signing for Spurs.

Chiricheș is their fifth summer arrival, though -- with the exception of occasional stand-in Étienne Capoue -- their only new centre-back. Having lost Steven Caulker and William Gallas this summer, Spurs have done well to reinforce their back line, especially with such a young talent.
