Tottenham rounded off a busy January by signing Gilberto from Hertha Berlin just before the transfer window closed.
Gilberto, a versatile left-back who can also play in midfield, arrived at Spurs' training ground yesterday to complete the transfer.
The Brazilian joins Jonathan Woodgate, Alan Hutton and Chris Gunter as manager Juande Ramos' new recruits.
Hertha were keen to sell Gilberto before the midnight deadline as his contract with the German club was due to expire in the summer, with Tottenham paying around £2 million for his signature.
The defender, 31, provides much-needed cover for Ramos following the long-term injuries to Gareth Bale and Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
