Sanchez is expected to be second choice at Spurs

Tottenham have completed the signing of Spanish goalkeeper Cesar Sanchez from Real Zaragoza.

The 36-year-old is the second keeper to sign for Spurs this summer following the departure of Paul Robinson, who joined Blackburn last month.

Sanchez is expected to be the understudy to Heurelho Gomes who joined from PSV as Robinson's replacement.

He had previously spent five years at Real Madrid, where he picked up a Champions League winners' medal.

He started the 2002 final against Bayer Leverkusen which Real won 2-1 and signed for Zaragoza in 2005.

Sanchez started his career with Real Valladolid and has earned one cap for his country, against Germany in 2000.
