Valencia’s president Amadeo Salvo has confirmed that the club have agreed to sell striker Roberto Soldado to Tottenham, with the only barrier to the deal being completed is how much commission Soldado’s agent makes, reports.

Reports on Sunday suggested that Spurs were willing to pay the strikers £25.8 million buy-out clause following a phone conversation between the clubs technical director Franco Baldini and Salvo.

Salvo has now confirmed that a move for Soldado is imminent and the club are already looking at possible replacements for the striker.

“The agreement with Tottenham is total,” Salvo is quoted as saying by Las Provincias.

Spurs will be happy that they have finally signed one of their main attacking targets following frustration that had missed out on David Villa and Christan Benteke.

The club had been linked with a move for Villa for many months but the Spanish striker decided to move to Atletico Madrid while Christan Benteke signed a new contract with Aston Villa following Spurs refusal to pay the Villains £25 million valuation.

Soldado is set to become Spurs record signing and the North London club will hope that the striker scores the goals that will propel them into the Premier League’s top four.
