Tottenham are set to hold further talks with Middlesbrough this week over a potential deal for Djed Spence, according to Sky Sports (14:37 – 21/6/22).
The report claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is set to conduct the latest round of negotiations after a deal has yet to be agreed.
Spurs have previously indicated that they believe the England Under21 international to be worth around £10million, while Boro were holding out for £15million plus add-ons which brought talks to a halt.
Levy’s involvement in the transfer is said to allow Spurs’ managing director of football to focus on other transfer matters.
Spence enjoyed a fruitful campaign on loan at Nottingham Forest last season and played a crucial role in Steve Cooper’s side after they secured promotion to the Premier League.
Forest are keen to retain the 21-year-old ahead of the new campaign, but have also seen their interest joined by that of Brentford, Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund and Roma (Football.London).

The transfer looks to be dragging out a little with Spurs keen to shave as much off the price tag as possible but with the difference being so minimal, you’d expect a deal to materialise at some point.
Hopefully, it doesn’t take too long to the point where Spurs miss their opportunity and another club swoops in and seals a deal.
