Middlesbrough grant Spence extra time off as Spurs talks continue

Middlesbrough have granted Djed Spence extra time off amid sale talks with Tottenham.

ESPN says Spurs have long since made the England Under-21 international their top target to upgrade upon the likes of Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty at the right wing-back position.

Spence has now been given an extra week of holiday by Boro as transfer negotiations continue.
