Spurs have been in talks over signing Pletikosa, 31, all summer and have finally got their man on deadline day.

Current number one Heurelho Gomes is out for the next two weeks with a groin injury and Carlo Cudicini has deputised in his absence. Now Pletikosa, an experienced Croatia international, will add competition.
