Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence is ‘favouring’ a move to Tottenham as Nottingham Forest’s hopes of keeping the England right-back continue to dim, according to The Athletic.

The 21-year-old spent the season on loan at Forest from Middlesbrough, racking up 42 Championship appearances, as well as 3 further playoff exits.

In that time he has racked up 2 goals and 5 assists for Steve Cooper’s side, and has caught the eye of many sides including Antonio Conte’s Tottenham who are looking to strengthen in the wing-back areas , with Emerson Royal seemingly likely to move. Just 12 months after joining the club.

And Spurs were given a major boost in their pursuit of the Englishman as it emerged he favored a move to north London rather than a return to the City pitch, leaving only a fee to be agreed.

“Spence is believed to favor Spurs over other interested parties and they are in talks with Boro, although no deal has been reached,” claims the reliable David Ornstein.

Spence to follow Bissouma?

Should Djed Spence join the Lilywhites he would likely follow Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, with a surprise Β£25million deal agreed with the Seagulls for the Mali international, who has just twelve months left on his contract at Amex Stadium.

It would continue what is shaping up to be a very impressive summer of recruitment under Antonio Conte as they look to challenge for trophies next season.
