Andre Villas-Boas confirms that Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sign Steaua Bucuresti defender Vlad Chiriches.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that he is interested in Steaua Bucuresti centre-back Vlad Chiriches.

The Portuguese coach is keen to add another defender to his ranks following the £8m sale of Steven Caulker to Cardiff City.

The North Londoners have long been linked with a move for the Romanian, and Villas-Boas joked that another club could still snatch him from under their noses, as Chelsea have done with Willian.

"Vlad Chiriches, there is an interest in the player," Villas-Boas told reporters. "Maybe somebody steals him as well!

"We have looked to strengthen our backline with the departure of Steven Caulker, last year we had Younes [Kaboul] injured for the season but we had five, so we are looking for the position and we are going to go ahead with our re-strengthening."

The 23-year-old has won 19 caps for his country.
