Spurs have agreed to meet Soldado’s buy-out-clause…
Tottenham have agreed to pay the €30m buy-out-clause for Valencia’s Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, it is being widely reported.
Valencia had previously promised that they would only sell the 24-goal forward if Spurs met his release clause, which the London club has now offered.
All that’s left now to finalise a deal is for Soldado to agree personal terms and pass a medical at White Harte Lane.
Antonio Sese, a director at Valencia has confirmed the news via his Twitter account. The tweet roughly translates as:
“They tell me that shortly Roberto Soldado will be officially transferred. They’re paying the (buy out) clause. Great management decision.”
