Gallas Joins Spurs

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Tottenham have today confirmed the signing of 33-year-old former Arsenal defender William Gallas.

Gallas, who played for Chelsea before joining Arsenal in 2006, has now signed for his third London club after Arsenal released him at the end of last season. He has signed on a one-year deal but Spurs have the option to extend the deal when this contract ends.

A statement on Tottenham's official website said: "We are delighted to announce the signing of William Gallas on a one year deal."

Gallas is already a very unlikeable player due to the way in which he left Chelsea and also his antics at St. Andrews in 2008 when he lost the plot on the pitch as Arsenal threw their title chances away. At 33 he is getting on, but he may still have another good year or two in him so I feel it's not a bad transfer for Spurs as Woodgate and King are very injury-prone.
