Spurs seal ‘total agreement’ for Gedson Fernandes

Capital gains Fernandes is set to seal a move to Spurs this week Transfer talk Tottenham set to plug Sissoko gap with deal for Gedson Fernandes by Metro Reporter Published

West Ham were thought to be close to securing a deal, though according to The Times, it is Spurs who now appear to have won the race to sign the midfielder, Fernandes set to arrive on an initial 18-month loan deal, though the North London side will have an option to sign the player permanently for a fee of £40m.

Italian reports have even linked Fernando Llorente with a return to Tottenham on loan, just six months after he was not offered a new contract and joined Napoli, while Crystal Palace flop Christian Benteke has been offered to Spurs and has not yet been rejected.

However, when asked for an update on his progress Mourinho struck a more hesitant tone, suggesting that the 26-year-old's comeback date is a lot more uncertain.

"News on Harry we don't have and if you ask me every time we come here the answer will be the same", Mourinho told reporters.

But Mourinho knows he is in a transitional phase at the club.

'You can feel that he is coming. "I don't want to talk about a Benfica player".

The defender began this season in the team, starting the first three Premier League matches at right-back under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs are in negotiations with Inter Milan over Eriksen, who was booed by some supporters when he was substituted in the defeat by Liverpool. "It's not us", Mourinho said, as reported by Sky Sports.

"It is the second time I get a team mid-season, it's just the second time for me", Mourinho added. "But again I repeat, we always respect their reaction".

Tottenham have been looking to strengthen their squad this month after being hit by a double blow with the news that Moussa Sissoko and Harry Kane have been ruled out until April with serious injuries.

Jose Mourinho insisted he was "not jealous" of the squads assembled by Liverpool and Manchester City, saying Tottenham was a different job.
