Steaua Bucharest recently confirmed that a deal has been agreed with Spurs for Chiriches, who is set to finalise his switch to White Hart Lane.

The 23-year-old had been close to a move to Spurs earlier in the summer but the negotiations failed, and Chiriches says it was a hard time before the move was resurrected.

He told DigiSport TV: "I had a hard time after the first round of negotiations failed, I even cried. I was upset for two days.

"I hope there won't be too much difference between the level of the Premier League and the level at which I have played. The most memorable moment of my career at Steaua was the winning of the championship, something I had dreamt of all my life.

"I hope I will be able to make my mark in England too."

The defender went on to admit the decision to leave was a tough one and offered his thanks to Steaua boss Laurentiu Reghecampf.

He added: "I will miss all my team-mates from Steaua, especially my friend Mihai Pintilii, and I wish them good luck and to win the championship again.

"I thank Laurentiu Reghecampf for everything."
