Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe admits that he is "excited" about the prospect of playing alongside Roberto Soldado.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe has admitted that he is "excited" about the prospect of playing with Roberto Soldado.

The Spain international is reportedly close to sealing a £26m move to Spurs after the two clubs finally came to an agreement over the possible transfer.

Defoe told The Mirror: "I can see why Spurs fans would be excited about Soldado coming because I am excited myself about the prospect of playing with him.

"He is a fantastic striker – sharp around the box and hungry to score goals. For me, it's not a case of thinking, 'A top-class forward is coming in, maybe I'm not going to play.'

"At the end of the day, I work hard and look after myself, so that I can give myself the best chance of bringing goals to the team."

The 28-year-old has scored 81 goals in 141 appearances for Valencia in three years.
