Tottenham have confirmed the signing of defender Ryan Nelsen from fellow Barclays Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.

New Zealander Ryan, who led his country at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, was released by Rovers after the club agreed to the termination of his contract

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had been keen to bring in another defender after Sebastien Bassong joined Wolves on loan for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day.
