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. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
