Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signings of Egyptian striker Mido from Roma and goalkeeper Radek Cerny from Slavia Prague.

Mido joins on an 18-month loan.

“My first impression is that it is a very organised club, very good management and I am happy to be here,” he said after taking part in his first training session.

“I am happy because it was my decision to come here, I had some options, but I had a good feeling about Spurs and I promise the fans that I will work hard and always do my best to be in good form.

“I followed my heart, my heart told me this is a good place, the right place to be and when I spoke with the coach he told me it will be a good place for me to work.”

Tottenham’s sporting director Frank Arnesen welcomed Mido to the club.

“Everybody knows we were looking for a young striker to fit into our plans and fortunately he has agreed to come to Tottenham for 18 months,” he said.

“Many clubs like him and this is normal, he is big lad, left footed and has a lot of experience even though he is only 21.”

Czech international Cerny, 30, has also agreed an 18-month deal.

“We were looking for a very good keeper, who has the ambition to play, but also knows Paul Robinson is in front of him,” Arnesen said.

“Cerny, who we know because of the relationship with Slavia Prague, is an international player for the Czech Republic behind (Chelsea’s) Petr Cech.

“He is 31 in February and it is the ideal situation for him and us — and he will stay here for 18 months,” Arnesen added.
