Football: Tottenham deal for Soldado completed, says Valencia president

LONDON (REUTERS) - A deal between Valencia and Tottenham Hotspur for the sale of Spain striker Roberto Soldado has been completed, the La Liga club's president told local media on Wednesday.

However, the 28-year-old will not be allowed to join the Premier League club until a problem with his agents has been resolved, Amadeo Salvo said in the daily El Mundo.

"The deal with Tottenham has been completed. A problem with Soldado's agents has come up and the player will not leave the club until a solution has been found," Salvo said.

Spanish media reports put the transfer fee at 30 million euros (S$50.3 million) for Soldado, who scored 30 goals in 46 appearances for Valencia last season.
