Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed on Twitter that Tottenham are now ironing out the ‘final details’ ahead of Sergio Reguilon’s loan move to Atletico Madrid.
The Tottenham left-back appears to be nearing a return to Spain, with Marca reporting on Friday that both Spurs and Atletico are confident that a transfer will go through before the deadline.
The Spanish publication explained that Diego Simeone’s side are simultaneously negotiating the sale of Renan Lodi to Nottingham Forest as well as a deal to sign Reguilon with Spurs.
Romano has now taken to social media to reveal that Atletico are waiting for Lodi to agree on personal terms with Forest before sealing the signing of Reguilon on loan.
The journalist added that the La Liga club will not have the option to sign the 25-year-old permanently at the end of his season-long loan spell.
Romano stated that only ‘final details’ need to be sorted between Atletico and Tottenham before Reguilon completes a loan switch to the Metropolitano Stadium.

Spurs Web Opinion
Some might feel that Spurs have failed with respect to offloading players this summer as the likes of Lo Celso, Ndombele and Reguilon have all made loan moves rather than permanent ones.
However, one has to remember that this is an extremely challenging seller’s market, with the clubs in the Serie A and La Liga not having the funds required to invest in new players.
Spurs will be hoping that the likes of Regulion and Lo Celso will do well enough on loan to increase their value and that they would be able to cash in on them next summer when the financial situations of clubs improve.
