Pardew praises Tottenham for Soldado deal

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Tottenham have pulled off a coup with Roberto Soldado's signing.

Pardew is a big fan of the former Valencia striker.

"He's a finisher, a real technical player so he will fit in nicely at Spurs and possibly fill the missing link of last year," Pardew told the London Evening Standard. "They will be ­looking for big things from him. Those five clubs really and truly are a little distance away. They are a big step up for the rest of us."
