Tottenham are closing in on Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy.

The People says Tottenham are ­making a £10million move for Cup Final star McCarthy as part of a major ­summer signing spree.

Spurs supremo Daniel Levy is heading up a chase for young stars and Wigan's 22-year-old Republic of Ireland ace is now a major priority.
