Spurs completed a deal for the Spain international on Monday, with the club's transfer record broken to bring in a proven goalscorer from Valencia.
Andre Villas-Boas was expected to make a move for a top marksman this summer after seeing his side fall agonisingly short in their push for a top-four finish last term.
Soldado is intended to be the man to help them over that particular line, and he is looking forward to facing the challenges which await him at White Hart Lane.
He told the club's official website: "I'm absolutely honoured to be at this club, to wear the shirt that has so much history. I'm hoping that I can score lots of goals to repay the club's kindness in signing me.
"Spurs is a great club and a club that deserves to be in the Champions League. I know it's a hard league and we have to work and play to that level to get there and I will do my best for the team.
"I've joined a great club with a lot of great players. As a group, including the new players, we're looking to improve and our objective is to get Spurs to where we belong.
"I've come here as a striker to score goals. I always try to achieve more goals in the next season, so that will be my aim, to score as many goals as I can for Spurs next season."
