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."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
