According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham and Leeds United have reached an agreement for the purchase of Djed Spence.
The Spence to Leeds rumors have gained momentum in recent days, and it now appears like the two clubs have reached an agreement on a loan arrangement.
Romano claims that a £1 million sum has been agreed upon, and all that is needed is the player’s approval.
As he tweeted:
Djed Spence is scheduled to transfer from Tottenham to Leeds Utd on loan; the two teams have reached an agreement today.
£1 million loan fee, player approval required soon, and we’re off!
Tottenham apparently wanted to sell the player permanently, but the only bids that were made were for loans.
He was not only interested in being loaned to Leeds United. Swansea City and Bristol City were also interested in him, but Leeds United has taken the lead.
They have now added Joe Rodon and Spence to their loan roster, removing two players from Tottenham’s salary list.
Spence paid over £20 million to join Tottenham at the beginning of the last campaign, but he has not received enough playing time to demonstrate his talent.
He was hired by former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who later acknowledged in the press that the player was not a personal favorite but rather a club signing.
After Pedro Porro, a first team starter for Ange, was signed in January, he further slipped down the pecking order.
Spence now has an opportunity to shine at Leeds in the hopes that he can force his way into the Spurs lineup for the upcoming campaign.
