Tottenham Hotspur have had an offer accepted from Southampton for want-away midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, as per journalist and commentator Alex Crook.
Crook reports that the whole package surrounding the deal is worth around £25 million, this includes add-ons.
This move has appeared to be more and more likely to materialise as the past few weeks have gone on and Crook expects the deal to move on quickly now the offer has been accepted.
His full tweet read:
Speculation has been rife over the Danish international’s future since he was stripped of Southampton’s captaincy, with Spurs and Everton regularly cropping up as clubs who wanted to sign him.
Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen his side in the middle of the park and it looks as though Hojbjerg is the man he wants to fill that void.
READ SOUTHAMPTON VERDICT
This news breaking was more of a ‘when’ rather than an ‘if’, as Spurs have looked increasingly likely to sign the 25-year-old of late.
This move looks to be a good one for all parties involved as it was clear that Hojbjerg didn’t have a future at St Mary’s and Saints will receive a hefty sum for the Dane.
It’s unclear what the whole package includes, but a deal that will see Kyle Walker-Peters heading to Southampton this transfer window from Spurs also looks likely.
All being well with contact negotiations, then it will be good for Ralph Hasenhuttl to move on from this transfer saga and look forward to strengthening his side before next season kicks off.
