'Happy' Valencia striker Soldado open to Premier League switch

The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham and, although he insists he is content in Spain, refuses to rule out a possible move to England's top flight
Valencia striker and Tottenham target Roberto Soldado insists he is happy at the Mestalla, but has refused to close the door on a move to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old, who bagged 24 goals in 36 La Liga appearances last season, has attracted the interest of Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs are reportedly weighing up a bid.

Soldado has an impressive 82 goals in 141 Valencia appearances in all competitions and says he is happy in Miroslav Djukic’s side, but will not rule out a move elsewhere in Europe.

“I'm very happy at Valencia but will not close the door to anything,” he told Movistar.

“I also see that there are colleagues who have left Spain and things are going well.“

Soldado, who has nine caps for Spain, is currently away in Brazil with Vicente del Bosque’s squad for the Confederations Cup, when they kick off their tournament on Sunday evening against Uruguay.

“The Premier League and the Bundesliga are very attractive for any player and we would all like to enjoy something there,” he added.
