Ledley King is confident that Roberto Soldado will be a hit with Tottenham.

The 28-year old Spanish striker recently completed a £26million club record move from Valencia and Spurs ambassador King believes he will be a star in North London.

"I've seen him play a few times, obviously in Spain, and what I've seen is a goal scorer, and that's what a side like Tottenham is looking for," he told Sky Sports News.

"We've obviously got good options in [Jermain] Defoe and [Emmanuel] Adebayor and the young players coming through, but this guy is really a goal scorer and I'm sure that he can do that in the Premier League."
