Soldado joined the north London outfit for a club record fee of £26million during the 2013 summer transfer window but struggled to bring his brilliant goalscoring form from Valencia to Spurs and eventually lost his place in the starting XI to Harry Kane last season.
The 30-year-old is set to join Villarreal having scored just seven league goals in England and will be hoping to rediscover his best form whilst at El Madrigal.
It appears the striker has no ill-feelings about his time at White Hart Lane as he posted a thank you message to the club on his official Twitter account.
