Tottenham Hotspur and Middlesbrough remain apart in their valuation of defender Djed Spence, according to Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas.

It is said that further talks between the two clubs took place in London yesterday, however an agreement failed to be reached with Tottenham prepared to look elsewhere in their search for a right-wing back.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was reported to have taken over the negotiations (Sky Sports) with the Championship outfit from managing director of football, Fabio Paratici who is currently understood to be in Italy where he has been discussing the respective futures of Bryan Gil and Joe Rodon (Gianluca Di Marzio).

The England U21 international impressed on a season-long loan with Nottingham Forest last season, playing a key role in the club’s promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs.

After a relatively swift start to the transfer window following the arrivals of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma it appears that Spurs are now experiencing some issues in getting other deals over the line.

Spurs fans and Antonio Conte will certainly want to see the club push forward and secure further signings before pre-season begins.
