Two more Tottenham signings about to be announced

Posted on July 30, 2013 by Eddie S

We have been waiting for the signing of Soldado for what seems an eternity but we learn that the deal is now close to being confirmed but better still will be the announcement that a second signing has been made, possibly a little surprising if true and a little worrying in terms of the current fitness of Younes Kaboul. The rumour is that 22yr old right sided central defender Vlad Chiriches has been signed from Steaua Bucharest at a cost of something in the region of £8m, not 23yrs old until November he is another central defender in the mould of Jan Vertonghen and already a full Romanian international.
Chiriches has been described by some as the most stylish defender in Europe. We have copied and pasted a small extract of an article found to best describe his attributes, if he is half the player described then we are in for a treat. “Chiriches is a stylish defender. He is a libertine, a libero-lothario who loves the ball like few others in his position. Where most centre backs would whack he caresses. He carries the ball out from the back with the tender control and poise of a tango dancer. He rarely wastes possession and is always looking to start attacks. Even under pressure his instinct is to pass not punt.
While his languid style makes him appear unhurried he is deceptively fast – able to cover ground quickly in defence or burst forward at pace. He is not afraid to throw his body on the line for the sake of his team. He has the courage to try and find a teammate with every pass. And, although not tall for his position, at 184cm, Chiriches is seldom dominated in the air”. this description comes from a respected Romanian international of the recent past. He is also no stranger to scoring a goal or two and creating chances.
By now we already know exactly what we shall be getting with Roberto Soldado, a predatory goal poacher with sublime skills and great all round ability.

Tottenham are putting in place a fantastic squad of players with which AVB will work this coming season and it seems the buying is not yet over.
