There is a growing confidence Tottenham Hotspur will complete the signing of the Middlesbrough youngster Djed Spence this summer. 

This is according to Alasdair Gold who has been speaking about all things transfer related on his latest Spurs roundup on his YouTube channel.

It was reported by Gold just over two weeks ago now that developments on Spence’s future were to be expected in the coming days, however, claims suggest Spurs are no closer to finding an agreement.

However, in recent days, Chris Wilder has spoken openly of Middlesbrough’s stance on the future of their right wing-back amid the interest from Antonio Conte’s side:

The boy obviously doesn’t want to come back here, which I’ve got absolutely no issue with. He obviously sees his future away from here, and he had a brilliant season last season. We’re expecting that deal to happen, but if it doesn’t, then he’s our player,” he said.

And with these comments in mind, Gold shared his understanding of the latest on the interest from Spurs and their valuation of the 21-year-old:

“In terms of actual progress to be able to report on in terms of Tottenham and a bid and everything, there’s not. But there is a growing expectation certainly on the Boro side that the move is going to happen. He appears to favour Spurs which is fantastic.”

TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…

We absolutely agree with Gold in the sense the price put on Spence needs to reflect his experience given he has only one good season under his belt.

Is £20m too much to pay for Djed Spence?





That season came in the Championship so it will certainly be a big step up to playing Premier League and Champions League football with Spurs.

So with a potential deal certainly posing a potential risk in the sense of not being able to replicate his form in the top flight, we think Spurs are right to negotiate strongly with the Championship side.

And as Gold suggested later in the video, if Boro want £20m, then £15m with a possible £5m in performance-related add-ons would make a lot of sense for Spurs.

    Yep there’s growing expectation that Gold has read articles online and stated what everybody knows already. Amazingly there are still people who believe Gold actually knows anything interesting about Tottenham. He doesn’t
