Roberto Soldado has immediately revealed his plans to help Tottenham force their way into the Champions League.

The 28-year old Spanish striker has joined Spurs from Valencia for £26million and is targeting a top-four finish in his season at White Hart Lane.

"I'm absolutely honoured to be at this club, to wear the shirt that has so much history. I'm hoping that I can score lots of goals to repay the club's kindness in signing me," he told the club's official website.

"Spurs is a great club and a club that deserves to be in the Champions League. I know it's a hard league and we have to work and play to that level to get there and I will do my best for the team.

"I've joined a great club with a lot of great players. As a group, including the new players, we're looking to improve and our objective is to get Spurs to where we belong.

"I've come here as a striker to score goals. I always try to achieve more goals in the next season, so that will be my aim, to score as many goals as I can for Spurs next season."
