Good morning.

This might be another ‘Vertonghen’ by the looks of it.

Which is to say that it’s all over bar the fine tuning of the fee. It is important to remember that football player transfers these days are highly complex beasts. And buying or selling with Spurs is not dissimilar to arranging a hire purchase deal on a second hand washing machine.

Lyon goalie Hugo Loris is supposedly happy to get measured up for a Lilywhite shirt with L’Equipe among others suggesting a fee around about the €20m mark.

This would be a super duper addition as the brave new world that the boy Boas is building will almost certainly run what they call in the trade a high line and quite frankly, for all his plus points I’ve seen nippier static caravans than the Bradster.
