Tottenham sign William Gallas

Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of former Arsenal captain William Gallas on a free transfer.
Gallas moves to Arsenal’s bitter north London rivals on a one-year deal and a weekly wage believed to be around £90,000-a-week.
The 33-year old Frenchman turned down several clubs, including another contract offer from Arsenal, to make the move.
Gallas left Chelsea in 2006 to join Arsenal. In 2008 he was stripped of the captaincy after he publicly criticised the players. He will always be remembered for sitting down on the pitch at the full-time whistle in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Birmingham, where Eduardo suffered a horrific leg-break.
A statement from Tottenham’s official club website read: “We are delighted to announce the signing of William Gallas on a one year deal.
“The France international was part of the Chelsea side that won back-to-back Premier League titles as well as the League Cup in 2005. His performances during Chelsea's second Premier League-winning campaign saw him included in the 2005/06 PFA Premier League Team of the Year.
“The former Caen and Marseille defender, 33, left Stamford Bridge after five seasons, during which he made 213 appearances and scored 14 goals, to join Arsenal in September 2006. Gallas captained the side during the 2007/08 campaign and went on to make 145 appearances, scoring 17 goals before leaving at the end of last season.”
