Dilan Markanday is having a medical at Blackburn Rovers ahead of a proposed transfer this month, according to Sky Sports. 

Spurs have agreed a £500,000 fee that could rise to £1 million for the sale of the 20-year-old, whose contract is due to expire at the end of the season. 

Markanday allegedly turned down the offer of a new contract from Spurs having been keen to secure more regular first-team opportunities. 

Sky Sports now reports Markanday’s move to Blackburn is edging ever closer, with the forward having a medical with the Championship high-flyers today. 

The departure will serve as a blow to Spurs’ reserve side, who currently sit third in the Premier League 2. 

Markanday has recorded 12 goals and five assists for the club’s Under-23 side this term, which put a host of EFL sides on red alert ahead of a potential coup this month. 

He is set to leave Spurs having made one first-team appearance this season, which came in the Europa Conference League defeat to Vitesse Arnhem in October.

Ultimately, Markanday wanted more first-team opportunities and he obviously felt those wouldn’t be coming at Spurs now and in the immediate future. It may seem like a small fee for the club to receive, but the positive is they are getting something for a youth player that could have left for free in the summer.
