Cape Town - Galatasaray are confident of concluding a deal for Tottenham Hotspur's Spanish striker Roberto Soldado. 

talkSPORT report that Roberto Soldado has been offered a way out of White Hart Lane after failing to nail down a starting spot in the Premier League team.

The Turkish giants are ready to move for the Spaniard and look set to offer the English club £9 million this summer.

Soldado's £2.2million annual salary is reportedly not a stumbling block to the deal with reports indicating that Turkish club are willing to match the striker's wage demands.

The 30-year-old striker endured a nightmare season at Spurs after failing to impress manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Spanish international netted just one league goal last season in 24 appearances.

Soldado signed from Valencia in 2013 for £26 million.
