Agent confirms Pletikosa on way to Tottenham

The agent of Stipe Pletikosa has confirmed the Spartak Moscow goalkeeper is on his way to Tottenham.

Spurs are closing in on a deal for Croatian goalkeeper Pletikosa according to his agent – even though he admits he would rather stay at Spartak Moscow.

“Spurs are to get Stipe on loan for the whole of the season and then will have the first option to buy him,” said his agent Marco Naletilic.

The deal is set to be completed before this weekend but Pletikosa said: “If not for the limit on foreign players I would be happy to continue in Spartak’s goal.”
