Spurs medical slated for Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence

Tottenham are closing a deal for Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.

The 21-year-old defender spent last year on loan at Nottingham Forest, playing 46 games in all competitions to help Steve Cooper's side gain promotion from the Championship to the Premier League via the play-offs.

The Telegraph says Spence is set to undergo his medical in time to join Spurs on their pre-season tour of South Korea, with Antonio Conte and his squad flying out on Saturday.

Both clubs are close to agreeing a deal in principle, with Spurs expected to seal the signing before this weekend.

Spurs have already signed Richarlison from Everton for £60m, Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma for £25m, plus Inter Milan wing-back Ivan Perisic and Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster on free transfers.
