Goal confirmed on Sunday the two clubs have reached an agreement worth €30 million for the striker, but Amadeo Salvo says a problem with agents is delaying official confirmation

Valencia president Amadeo Salvo has confirmed Roberto Soldado is on the verge of joining Tottenham, describing the agreement between the two clubs as "total".

Goal revealed on Sunday that the north London outfit are set to pay the striker's release clause of €30 million (£25.9m) following a phone call between Spurs' technical director, Franco Baldini, and Salvo.

And now, following former Valencia director Antonio Sese hinting that a deal had been struck, and current Los Che coach Miroslav Djukic seemingly resigned to losing Soldado, Salvo has confirmed a move in imminent.

"The agreement with Tottenham is total," Salvo is quoted as saying by Las Provincias.

However, the Che chief has admitted that the switch will not be completed until issues involving Soldado's representatives have been resolved.

"A problem with the agents has emerged," he added. "[Once resolved] he will go."

Elsewhere, Tottenham centre-back Bongani Khumalo has joined Championship side Doncaster Rovers on a season-long loan.

The South Africa international spent last term at Greek side PAOK. This will be his third spell in England following stints at Preston and Reading.
