Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have completed the transfer of Roberto Soldado from Valencia after the Spanish striker passed a medical.

Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have completed the signing of Valencia striker Roberto Soldado for a fee believed to be around £26m.

The Spanish international joins on a four-year deal after Tottenham announced the signing on their official Twitter account.

The club also declared that Soldado is expected to be available for Spurs' next friendly against Espanyol on August 10th.

Soldado, 28, had been heavily linked to a move to White Hart Lane in recent weeks, and has now finally completed his transfer from Valencia, where he scored 59 goals in 101 games. The striker has also been capped 11 times for his national side, scoring six goals, and will surely hope his move will help him earn a place in the squad for the 2014 World Cup.
