Tottenham are growing confident of landing Barcelona striker David Villa.

The London Evening Standard says talks with Barcelona over a £12million deal for Villa are believed to be at an advanced stage.

Tottenham used the post-season trip to the Caribbean to conduct a meeting between owner Joe Lewis, chairman Daniel Levy and manager Andre Villas-Boas to discuss summer targets.

Villas-Boas is continuing to push for big names to help turn the club into not only top four contenders but also title challengers.

Villa's move to White Hart Lane could hinge on assurances that Spurs won't be selling Gareth Bale this summer.
