BALE REPORTS MAKE SPURS SOL DEAL URGENT.

TOTTENHAM are closing in on the signing of Valencia striker Roberto Soldado.

The north London club's need for attacking reinforcements is well documented - with Gareth Bale last night reported to have told them he wants to leave - as is their desire to bring in the 28-year-old Spain international.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas recently confirmed an interest in Soldado, and a deal is believed to be edging ever closer.

Valencia president Amadeo Salvo last week warned Tottenham that they will have to meet the 30million euros (PS26million) buy-out clause if they are to prise him away from the Mestalla.

Salvo said at the time that the Primera Division club never had any intention of selling Soldado, but now appears resigned to losing him.

"The agreement with Tottenham is total," Salvo is quoted as saying "A problem has arisen with the (player's) agents," he added. "(If it is resolved) he will go."
