Tottenham in talks with Villarreal over £11m sale of striking flop

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in talks with Villarreal over an £11million deal to sell Roberto Soldado, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 30-year-old joined from Valencia two years ago for a fee of £26million, but has struggled to find form over the course of the previous two campaigns.

Spurs are now ready to offload the striker and is even prepared to take a huge loss in order to push his potential move back to Spain.

He was brought in from the profits made through the record breaking sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but has now joined the list of players who failed to live up to their expectations.

Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, and Vlad Chiriches all joined following the departure of Bale, but have now left White Hart Lane after struggling to hold down a regular role.

Soldado played a total of 52 matches in all competitions for the club since his arrival, but has only managed to register seven goals.
