Pletikosa joins on loan

We are delighted to announce the signing of Stipe Pletikosa from Spartak Moscow on a season-long loan.

The Croatia goalkeeper, 31, began his career with Hajduk Split and was a member of their league championship winning side of 2001.

He also lifted two Croatian Cups during more than 172 appearances for his hometown club and scored six goals from the penalty spot. His performances during the 2001/02 campaign earned him the Croatian Player of the Year accolade.

Pletikosa moved to Spartak in 2007, following four years with Shakhtar Donetsk, and appeared against us in our UEFA Cup Group match in December 2008 at White Hart Lane.

Capped at every international level from Under-15 upwards, Pletikosa has gone on to win 80 caps for the senior national side including appearing in the World Cup Finals of 2002 and 2006 and the 2008 European Championships.
