Tottenham, England (Sports Network) - The Tottenham Hotspurs signed striker Bobby Zamora to a three-year $2.3 million contract on Friday. The 22-year old Zamora starred on the England Under-21 team and for Brighton of English Divisions I, II and III. The Spurs lost Teddy Sheringham and Steffen Iversen is trying to work out a deal with Wolverhampton, so the club needed to sign a striker. "I'm delighted to have signed Bobby," said Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle. "He's a proven goalscorer outside the Premiership and I'm sure he can now score goals in the Premiership." Zamora was signed from Brighton, where he spent three seasons at all three divisions. He scored 31 goals in his rookie season of 2000-01. He scored 34 the following season at Division II and then at Division I, Zamora scored six goals last season. The English native is delighted with the move. "I'm overjoyed," said Zamora. "It has taken a long time but now I'm looking forward to the challenge of playing in the Premiership."
