Fernandes close to joining Spurs

with No Comments

Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes is close to joining Tottenham on an 18-month loan deal, after choosing the club over London rivals West Ham.

The 21-year-old, who has two senior caps for Portugal, is expected to fly into the UK next week to finalise the deal.

Chelsea have also been interested in signing Fernandes and offered an 18-month loan deal with an obligation to buy for £55m, provided the player features in at least half of the games during the loan spell.

 

Fernandes’ release clause is £102m but Benfica have conceded they will not get close to that figure for a player who is out of favour and is reported to have fallen out with head coach Bruno Lage.
