Tottenham have won the race to sign highly-rated Croatia midfielder Luka Modric from Dinamo Zagreb for a fee believed to be £15.8million.

The Premier League club have agreed personal terms with the 22-year-old, who was reportedly courted by many of Europe's top sides, and he will leave Zagreb for White Hart Lane this summer subject to his passing a medical.

Modric must also obtain a work permit but that will be a formality given his status as one of the continent's most coveted talents.
