According to the Guardian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur have reached ‘total agreement’ to sign Gedson Fernandes in the January transfer window.

Sky Sports (transfer live blog; 14:21), reports that Fernandes is currently at Tottenham’s training ground ahead of a proposed loan move from Benfica.

The 21-year-old is set to complete an 18-month loan deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs will have an option to buy the 21-year-old for £56m after Benfica accepted a higher loan fee for him.

Benfica also had agreed a loan offer from West Ham for Fernandes, but Romano has claimed that the Hammers ‘have never been in the race’.

The highly-rated midfielder has a release clause of £102m but Benfica have conceded they will not get close to that figure for the player who has fallen out with head coach Bruno Lage.

Spurs desperately needed to sign a midfielder this month after Moussa Sissoko’s injury blow. Fernandes is an exciting talent, and it remains to be seen how quickly he adapts at his new club.
