Lenglet to skip Barcelona preseason and go straight to Spurs

Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet is due to sign for Tottenham on Monday.

Sport says the Blaugrana and Tottenham are in agreement over a loan for the Frenchman to the London club and the deal should be signed and sealed on Monday.

It's not expected Lenglet returns to Barcleona first, he has permission to go straight to Tottenham, something that should be official next week, by Tuesday at the very latest.

The deal is satisfactory for Barcelona, who save on his big salary, and the player could earn back some of his value if he finds form in the Premier League and Champions League.

There is a good feeling between the clubs, with Emerson moving to Spurs last summer from Barcelona.
