Vlad Chiriches: Steaua defender completes Spurs move

Tottenham have completed the signing of Romania defender Vlad Chiriches from Steaua Bucharest.

The departures of William Gallas and Steven Caulker left Tottenham short on numbers at the back, but they have now resolved the problem by signing 23-year-old Chiriches for a fee of around £8.5million.

Tottenham posted on their Twitter feed: "We're delighted to announce we have reached agreement with FC Steaua Bucharest for the transfer of Vlad Chiriches."

Chiriches played 62 times for Steaua during a two-year period at the club and he has made 19 appearances for his country.

The defender is Tottenham's fifth signing of a busy summer which has seen the north London club spend £67million in the market.

"For me, this is something incredible. A dream come true," he said.

Chiriches will compete with Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and captain Michael Dawson for a place in the heart of the Spurs defence.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
