The Sun journalist Tom Barclay has revealed that Tottenham are insisting they have not yet reached an agreement with Middlesbrough to sign Djed Spence. 

The Daily Mail have claimed Spurs are in advanced talks to 21-year-old Spence, who enjoyed a stellar campaign on loan at Nottingham Forest last season. 

The same report predicted a transfer fee to be in the region of £15 million plus add-ons, with the England U21 international thought to favour a move to Antonio Conte’s side (The Athletic). 

The fresh report comes after it was previously claimed Tottenham managed to strike an agreement with Boro regarding Spence in a move estimated to be in the region of £20m (The Guardian). 

However, Barclay believes Spurs are not quite there yet and still have some work to do for a transfer to materialise, with figures at the club insisting nothing has been agreed as of yet. 

He told GiveMeSport: “There have been mixed messages on this one. I understand it’s not as far as people have suggested. Some people have been suggesting it’s a done deal and there is a medical.

“It does feel like this is going to eventually end up with Djed Spence at Tottenham, so I get that, but Spurs are pretty adamant that no agreements have been reached.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Tottenham are so close to sealing this move for Spence as they have been for a couple of weeks now but they just need to get one more step over the line. 

It could be a matter of a few million that is stopping this deal from completing and you hope it can be resolved soon with the amount of time remaining in the window. 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Its Levy who has taken over this transfer. Gues what we want another discount. It will never happen. Levy is up to his old self never pay the price. Come on Conte put the shits up[ him!

  2. I think everyone needs to have a lie down. I am sure there is someone out there retentive enough to count every word published about the Spence hype “saga” -the reality is : this is Spence of Boro NOT Messi, Haaland or Mbappe we are talking about – take your pic
