Tottenham are close to making yet ANOTHER signing, with club in advanced talks to finally sign Djed Spence from Middlesbrough after negotiations stalled… with Richarlison and Clement Lenglet also incoming
Tottenham are in advanced talks to sign Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.
The 21-year-old defender spent last year on loan at Nottingham Forest, playing 46 games in all competitions to help Steve Cooper’s side gain promotion from the Championship to the Premier League via the play-offs.
And Spurs are now closing in on another signing as they continue their big summer rebuild.

Antonio Conte’s side have already signed Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma for £25million, plus Inter Milan wing-back Ivan Perisic and Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster on free transfers.
Everton forward Richarlison is set for a medical ahead of a £60m move, while Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet is close to joining on loan.
And talks over the three-cap England Under-21 international, who can play at right back or wing-back, are advancing, although are not finalised yet.
The Premier League side are also close to signing Everton’s Brazilian forward Richarlison
The figure for Spence, who was named in the EFL and PFA Championship Team of the Year last season, will be around £15-16m, plus add-ons.
Negotiations stalled a couple of weeks ago regarding the structure of the deal.
