Vlad Chiriches says he's now feeling settled at Tottenham.

The Romania defender is set to start against Capital One Cup opponents Hull City tonight.

"My girlfriend was staying here for six or seven years so it was easier for me (to settle in)," he said.

"It's incredible to play for Spurs and I'm delighted to be here. It's a good feeling to play against a lot of good teams."

On tonight's game, Chiriches also told the club's website: "They defended so hard and it was a tough game.

"I think it will be the same in the cup, but I hope we will put on a good performance and we will win the game."
