Tottenham have announced Romania defender Vlad Chiriches is to join Serie A club Napoli for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old moved to north London from Steaua Bucharest for a reported fee of 9.5million euros in August 2013 but struggled to cement a regular first-team spot at White Hart Lane and will now be moved on.

Tottenham said on their official website: "We have reached agreement with Napoli for the transfer of Vlad Chiriches. We wish Vlad every success for the future."

Chiriches made just 43 appearances across his two seasons, 27 of which came in the Premier League.

He signed off in ignominious fashion in his final match with the club after being red-carded in the 3-0 defeat at Stoke on May 9.

With Spurs signing Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid, Chiriches, who has 32 caps for Romania, was likely to fall further down the pecking order at Spurs.

Chiriches is the second defender to leave the club this summer after Younes Kaboul signed for Premier League rivals Sunderland earlier this month.
