Tottenham boss Villas-Boas expecting Modric conclusion soon

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas believes there will be a conclusion to the Luka Modric saga very soon.

The Croatian playmaker is being heavily linked with a move to Spanish champions Real Madrid and although a transfer has yet to be agreed, Villas-Boas feels that something will happen in the next few weeks whilst making clear that Modric has not been a distraction as the story has rolled on.

"No, this is not a distraction," said the former Chelsea boss.

"We set out a plan for the player and we have stuck to it. The player is training individually and he doesn't disrupt our environment.

"I think we will have a conclusion in the next couple of weeks.

"We expect him here to train. He is still a Tottenham player but from what the chairman has told me talks are ongoing, they stalled a little bit two weeks ago, but they have picked up recently."
