Andre Villas-Boas says he is pleased to have signed winger Nacer Chadli from FC Twente - but insists the Belgian international won't be Spurs' last signing of the summer.

Chadli is set to hook up with the north London club for their pre-season tour in Hong Kong having agreed a five-year contract in a deal worth around £7 million.

The 23-year-old is Tottenham's second signing of the summer after Brazilian Paulinho headed to White Hart Lane earlier this month for £17 million.

Villas-Boas says he is delighted to have landed Chadli having tracked the talented youngster for some time.

"Chadli's a player we've been following for quite some time and we managed to strike a deal in the last few days," he told reporters.

"He's a player who is extremely versatile and can play in several positions up front. He played with tremendous success on the left for Twente as a winger and as an attacker for Belgium. We look forward to having him on board with us."

The former Chelsea coach was keen to stress however that his dealings in the transfer market are far from over as Spurs continue to search for a new striker.

"We will continue to do our market and we have not stopped yet, for sure," he said.

Spurs are in desperate need of a front man and were linked with David Villa and Christian Benteke, but missed out on both.

Recent reports suggest they have now turned their attention to Valencia forward Roberto Soldado.
