Spurs in History - 30th June

30th June, 1995

Chris Armstrong Signs for Tottenham Hotspur

Chris Armstrong was signed from Crystal Palace for a fee of £4.5 million to become Spurs most expensive player.

He had been bought to replace Jurgen Klinsmann who had returned to Germany after only one season at White Hart Lane. The initial reaction was not very positive with newspaper reports of Teddy Sheringham being less than complimentary about his new striking partner.

However, he did form a very effective partnership with Sheringham but he had an impossible task to try to replace Klinsmann in the hearts of the supporters.

His career at Spurs ended when he was released in 2002 following a long period of injury.
