Tottenham have announced the signing of Canadian international defender Paul Stalteri from Werder Bremen.

The 27-year-old full-back won the Bundesliga title and German Cup in 2004 and has over 50 international caps.

Sporting director Frank Arnesen said: "He is a defender who can play in midfield - so he is a multi-functional player who can play on both sides.

"He has come from a tough environment at Werder Bremen and their players are very well-known for their mentality."

Arnesen added: "His biggest success was last year winning the double and he has now had good experience of European football.

"I am delighted to get him in, there were a lot of clubs chasing him, including some from England. He will be a big plus for the squad."

Stalteri is the third arrival at White Hart Lane this year, following the January signings of Teemu Tainio and Tom Huddlestone.
