Tottenham's radical overhaul continued on Tuesday with Real Zaragoza goalkeeper Cesar Sanchez signed up to act as understudy to new first choice keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Gomes arrived from PSV Eindhoven to replace Paul Robinson, one of seven players who have left White Hart Lane over the summer.

The 36-year-old Sanchez, who earned a Spanish cap earlier in his career, arrives in London on a year-long loan.

The veteran played in the Champions League final for Real Madrid against Bayer Leverkusen in 2002.

Dimitar Berbatov also played in that Hampden Park final, for Bayer Leverkusen, but a reunion is unlikely as the Bulgaria striker has told club officials he wants to leave for Manchester United.

Spurs are waiting for an improved offer from the Premier League and European champions.

Spurs coach Juande Ramos has a list of targets he has handed to chairman Daniel Levy and sporting director Damien Comolli in anticipation of Berbatov's departure.

His transfer would follow those of fellow striker Robbie Keane to Liverpool, Steed Malbranque, Pascal Chimbonda and Teemu Tainio to Sunderland and defender Younes Kaboul to Portsmouth.

Aside from Sanchez and Gomes Spurs have also recruited David Bentley for an initial 15 million pounds (22 million euros) from Blackburn, Croatian playmaker Luka Modric and Mexican youngster Giovani dos Santos.
