Needing to add depth in central defense, Tottenham has turned to Steaua Bucharest's Vlad Chiriches, finalizing a deal that has been in the works for some time.

From AFP (via FIFA.com):

Tottenham Hotspur have agreed terms with Steaua Bucharest to buy defender Vlad Chiriches, the Romanian side's coach, Laurentiu Reghecampf said today.

'The clubs have agreed on the transfer and I am happy for him,' Reghecampf told a news conference.

Steaua general manager Mihai Stoica said that the transfer fee had been set at €9.5million, which would be a record for the 1986 European champions. The 23-year-old Chiriches joined Steaua in January 2012. He has been capped 19 times for Romania.
