Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Paul Robinson admitted it was a huge wrench to leave Leeds United - but neccessary to further his career.

The England goalkeeper was unveiled at Spurs Lodge today after finalising a £1.5m deal yesterday.

At Elland Road for 10 years, Paul was pictured in tears with team-mate Alan Smith across the nation's newspapers after relegated Leeds' final home game against Charlton Athletic last week.

"It was a big wrench for me personally because I've been at Leeds since I was 14 and that's all that I've known," said Paul.

"It's like moving away from home but they needed me to go and I probably needed to go to further my career, so it's worked out for all of us.

"I said my farewells at Leeds yesterday and there were a few supporters up there, all wishing me well and there were no bad feelings. It was a very nice day for me and last week will always stay with me.

"Thankfully I've joined a huge club and I can look forward now rather than back."

Paul is pictured wearing next season's home goalkeeper's kit from Kappa - available this summer...
