Lamela lets slip over Soldado's Tottenham 'exit'

The Spanish flop looks to be heading for the White Hart Lane exit if a hastily deleted tweet by his current club teammate is anything to believe

Tottenham attacker Erik Lamela appears to have confirmed the exit of striker Roberto Soldado in a tweet that was swiftly deleted by the Argentinian.

The former Spain international has been linked with a move back to La Liga with Villarreal in recent weeks, having fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane in since his arrival from Valencia in 2013.

There has been no official word regarding the 30-year-old’s, but teammate Lamela took to social media to say goodbye to his outgoing team-mate.

“I enjoyed these two years that we share, I wish you well in your new club !! Good luck my friend !!,” he tweeted, before removing the post soon after.

Soldado arrived in North London for a reported fee of £26m but failed to reproduce the form that had seen him become one of La Liga’s top marksmen with 81 goals in 101 appearances at the Mestalla.

After scoring just six goals in his debut campaign in England, the former Real Madrid forward was afforded just seven Premier League starts last term, contributing a solitary goal.

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has previously refused to confirm that Soldado will leave the club.
