Tottenham close on transfer breakthrough – report

It’s been a long time coming this summer but Tottenham may well be on the verge of their first major signing of the close season.

They have been in a battle for the services of Ben Davies but reports on Friday afternoon suggest that the player could complete a transfer to Tottenham over the weekend with a price set to be agreed today.

The left-back spot has been something of a problem for Tottenham over the last few years and they will hope, with the potential signing of Davies, that they can that hole for some time to come. At 21 years of age he’s been a stalwart of the Swansea side over the last two years and has already played 10 games for his country, Wales, at international level – he’s young but certainly has good experience and Tottenham won’t to be scared to throw him in at the deep end next season.

The Mirror says that a deal could be close:

Spurs are set to agree the £8 million fee today and then hope for the nod from the defender they have been chasing for weeks.

The 21-year-old was swaying towards a move to Merseyside and the chance of Champions League football this season.

But Spurs are now willing to bid more and meet Swansea’s demand for a guaranteed £8 million fee.

The 21-year-old Welsh international is believed to have been swayed by the promise of guaranteed first team football at White Hart Lane

Of course things can change quickly in the transfer market but Tottenham fans will be hopeful that this deal can be concluded quickly to ensure sufficient time for the club to concentrate on other areas of the squad – most notably up top where Spurs look short on quality and numbers.
