Former Tottenham defender Paul Stalteri will return to the German Bundesliga after mutually agreeing to a contract termination at White Hart Lane.

The 31-year old Canadian international formally played at Werder Bremen before a move to England and now will join Borussia Monchengladbach in the new year.

Stalteri has signed a two-and-a-half year deal, confirmed by Borussia sporting director Max Eberl.

"We have brought in Paul Stalteri for the positions on either side of defence," he said.

"He may play on the right but can also play on the left side."
