Watford have agreed fees with Tottenham to sign their French midfielders Etienne Capoue and Benjamin Stambouli, according to Sky sources.

The pair have found regular first-team football hard to come by at White Hart Lane. Capoue has only managed to make 19 Premier League starts in two years at the club and hasn’t even been named in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad since late January.

Stambouli in many Tottenham fan’s eyes has not been given a fair crack of the whip, with Ryan Mason preferred by Poch.

Sky claim that Capoue is close to agreeing to personal terms and negotiations are also ongoing with Stambouli, although an agreement with the Benjy is still some way from being reached.

We have already seen Paulinho and Lewis Holtby depart N17 and it looks like it will be a busy summer at the club as Poch looks to put his stamp on his squad.
