Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham have agreed a contract with Pedro Porro that will run until June 2028, which makes it a five-and-a-half-year deal.
The journalist also added that Tottenham and Sporting Lisbon have agreed to have the transfer fee paid across two or three instalments. It appears we are not far from the deal being completed, with Romano confirming that all parties are ‘confident’ it will get done.
This comes despite Sky Sports reporting earlier today that Sporting were still not keen on selling Porro in the January transfer window. Spurs were said to be frustrated at how the Portuguese club were dragging out the negotiations.
Bruno Andrade also claimed that Sporting asked Tottenham to let Porro play in the cup final against Porto this week as a condition of the deal, which Spurs agreed to.
According to O Jogo, Spurs will pay the full €45 million (£39.6 million) that Sporting wanted for the player, without actually triggering his release clause.

Spurs Web Opinion:
This seems to be getting closer and closer, and I know the Spurs fans are dying to see the final confirmation. I for one am excited at the prospect of getting two deals done with a few days left in the window, meaning we could still see a late surprise.
