Report: A Championship team is in the process of signing a Spurs player for a seven-figure loan fee.

Djed Spence is reportedly close to signing a £1 million loan agreement with Leeds United, according to Phil Hay of The Athletic.

Football Insider has reported that Tottenham is asking Leeds United to pay more than £1 million in loan fees for Djed Spence.

Sky Sports News claimed on Monday that Leeds had begun discussions with Tottenham about a loan deal for Spence and wanted to strengthen at right-back before the transfer window closed.

It was clarified, though, that the deal was not yet advanced and that other teams were interested in signing the Spurs star.

The transfer of Djed Spence to Leeds United is almost complete.

According to the Athletic, Spence, 23, will go on a full-season loan to Leeds United for a sum of £1 million; however, there is neither an option nor a requirement for Spurs to make a buy of the player.

Spence will benefit from this move since Leeds, under Daniel Farke, play aggressively, and the 23-year-old needs consistent starts next season if he is to regain his confidence and restart his career.


Tottenham hopeful over Brennan Johnson deal as Djed Spence and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg explore exit options

Brennan Johnson’s negotiations with Brentford were terminated, thus Tottenham should have an open window to sign him to a contract with Nottingham Forest.

Spurs are still in talks with Forest for the 22-year-old, who the Midlands club values at £50 million, and are hopeful of reaching an agreement. However, they still need to make room in their roster by letting go of a number of unwanted players.

Spurs have provided players in exchange, notably Davison Sanchez, in an effort to lower Forest’s asking price and clear the field.

Ange Postecoglou is a huge supporter of the Wales international, and Johnson is rumored to have expressed a desire for joining Spurs.

Johnson is the ideal candidate for Postecoglou’s revamped team since he is a young, homegrown player who can play everywhere along the front line. Spurs are looking to significantly reduce the average age of the squad in the wake of Harry Kane’s £100 million transfer to Bayern Munich.

Johnson, a Forest academy graduate, has 108 senior appearances for the team, making 29 goals and 12 assists.

Brentford had three offers for Johnson rejected by Forest, the most recent being for an estimated £43 million. It is said that they have since moved on to other targets. The Bees may still express interest in the player if Forest lowers their asking price before the deadline on Friday, but would prefer to add more firepower to make up for the loss of suspended Ivan Toney. In addition to making a bid for Nicolas Gonzalez of Fiorentina this month, Brentford has also been connected to wingers Johan Bakayoko of PSV Eindhoven and Bradley Barcola of Lyon.

Leeds and Tottenham are currently negotiating a loan agreement for undesired defender Djed Spence.

The 22-year-old is desired by the Championship team for the current campaign on a pure loan deal, without an option or requirement to purchase him next summer. Discussions are still ongoing.

Joe Rodon, a defender from Tottenham, has previously been acquired by Leeds on a temporary basis.

Spence was hesitant to return to the Championship after moving to Spurs from Forest in a move for up to £20 million last summer, but Postecoglou has informed him that he is not in the team’s plans.

Hugo Lloris, Japhet Tanganga, Tanguy Ndombele, and Sergio Reguilon are among players that Spurs are trying to get go of. In the last days of the transfer window, Manchester United has been given the opportunity to make a bid for Spurs midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

With two years left on his contract and no longer being the first choice in midfield at Spurs, Hojbjerg would like to leave the club.

The Dane previously collaborated with Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, when the Dutchman oversaw Bayern Munich’s B squad.
