Chan Siu-Ki is rumoured to be heading for a trial with Tottenham during the next month, according to Far Eastern reports.

The Hong Kong international, who plays for South China, impressed during the pre-season friendly against the Hong Kong champions and is expected to join Spurs for a 10 day trail in December.

Spurs and South China agreed to a partnership programme earlier in the week, which will see them able to exchange players and coaching methods and Chan is to be the first player to benefit from this partnership.

Chan has made 27 appearances for South China, scoring 22 goals and scored against Spurs in a pre-season friendly in August with a long-range effort.

Executive director, Paul Barber, believes the partnership with South China will be very beneficial to Spurs growth, especially in marketing Tottenham to the Far East.

He told the club’s official website, “Tottenham Hotspur already has an established following in Hong Kong and given the history and success of South China, they are a welcome partner.

“The agreement with South China is an exciting opportunity for the club to grow in a key commercial market.”
