The departures of William Gallas and Steven Caulker left Tottenham short on numbers at the back, but they have now resolved the problem by signing 23-year-old Chiriches for a fee of around £8.5million.
Tottenham posted on their Twitter feed: "We're delighted to announce we have reached agreement with FC Steaua Bucharest for the transfer of Vlad Chiriches."
Chiriches played 62 times for Steaua during a two-year period at the club and he has made 19 appearances for his country.
The defender is Tottenham's fifth signing of a busy summer which has seen the north London club spend £67million in the market.
"For me, this is something incredible. A dream come true," he said.
Chiriches will compete with Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and captain Michael Dawson for a place in the heart of the Spurs defence.
