Chiriches: Poised to move to Spurs

Spurs have been searching for a new centre-back following the departures of Steven Caulker and William Gallas.

The north London club failed in their bid to sign 23-year-old Chiriches last month, but a fee of around £8.5million appears to have now been agreed.

Steaua hope the defender, who has won 19 caps for Romania, will play in the second leg of their Champions League play-off against Legia Warsaw on Tuesday before completing his move to White Hart Lane.

"The two clubs have agreed to transfer him. I'm very happy for him," Steaua manager Laurentiu Reghecampf told a press conference on Saturday.

"I can not say the amount for which (he was) transferred, but it is very high.

"It will be the most expensive transfer in the history of Steaua.

"The owner says that all there is left to do is sign some documents.

"We hope he will help us Tuesday night if he can."

Chiriches has played at four different Romanian clubs and he also had a one-year spell at Benfica between 2007 and 2008.

An imposing figure at 6ft 1in, Chiriches can also play at full-back or in midfield.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
