The 30-year-old had developed a reputation as one of the most prolific strikers in Europe during his time with Valencia as he bagged 24 league goals during his final season in Spain and was expected help Spurs secure Champions League qualification upon his arrival in England during the 2013 summer transfer window.
However, he has only been able to register seven goals in the Barclays Premier League during two full seasons at White Hart Lane and is now set for a return back home as his poor form has left the club with no choice other than to accept they will have to take a huge loss on a player they paid almost £30million for.
El Submarino Amarillo were originally interested in a season-long loan deal for Soldado, but Spurs are only open to permanent offers as they look to continue their summer clearout following the departures of Paulinho, Vlad Chiriches and Etienne Capoue.
