Carrick deal agreed
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).
We are delighted to announce that we have agreed a deal to bring Michael Carrick to the club.
Carrick, 23, has been signed from West Ham on a four-year deal that remains subject to a medical.
The midfielder has already chalked up over 150 appearances for West Ham and earned two full England caps.
Sporting Director Frank Arnesen commented: "Michael is a big English talent and we're very pleased to sign him, particularly at his young age.
"Technically he is very good, a great passer of the ball who can go left or right and with him we have a very strong midfield. We have high-quality competition for places and that's something any top club needs."
