Tottenham announce the signing of Roberto Soldado, subject to a medical

Jasper Juinen

And just like that, we're back from the 'dead'.

Though it looked for a few horrible days like it wasn't going to happen, it's now official: Roberto Soldado is set to become a Spurs player.

Soldado's signing represents the first time probably since Dimitar Berbatov left that Tottenham have found a long-term solution for our problems up top. His prolific goal record in La Liga virtually guarantees that Spurs will not be left badly hurting for goals in the season to come, whatever the conclusion of the Gareth Bale saga ends up being, and his presence in the side will likely be a key factor in deciding how close Tottenham come to securing Champions League qualification in 2014. The date of Soldado's transfer should give him just enough time to bed in with the squad and hopefully we'll be able to see him hit the ground running on opening day against Crystal Palace.

Paulinho, Chadli, and THE. For all the upset the last few months have brought us, in terms of nailing down our targets, it's really hard for me to deny at this point that this window has been the best so far of my time supporting Spurs.
