Tottenham Hotspur have finalized the transfer of Romanian centre back Vlad Chiriches from Steaua Bucharest for a transfer fee believed to be around £7million.
According to the club website, “The centre-back joined Steaua from Pandurii Targu Jiu, making his debut in July 2011 before helping them to the Romanian Liga I championship last year.
“The 23-year-old made a total of 62 appearances during his stay in the Romanian capital, scoring four times, and his impressive appearances at club level have seen him capped on 19 occasions so far by the Romania national team.”
Chiriches will help add depth to the central defender position after Steven Caulker left Tottenham earlier this summer to join Cardiff City.
So far this summer, Tottenham have signed Paulinho, Nacer Chadli, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue.
