Villarreal ‘small details’ from Soldado

Villarreal President Fernando Roig has confirmed that his club are on the verge of signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado.

The Yellow Submarine have been heavily linked with the 29-year-old for the past week, and the patron revealed “small details” were all that was needed for the player to finalise his transfer to El Madrigal, thereby ending a disappointing two years in north London.

“[Regarding Soldado, only] small details [are needed],” he was quoted as telling Marca.

Roig also claimed Soldado’s arrival did not break the club’s economic structure, only that a significant effort was made to bring in a player of his calibre, according to the newspaper.

On the departure of Gerard Moreno to Espanyol, the supremo noted: “Gerard competed and did well for Villarreal.

“His exit was good for all three parties concerned and we can only wish him well.”
