Hold on tight. It’s deadline day.
Joao Moutinho, Porto to Tottenham
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy likes to leave deals to the last minute and this one is set to go down to the wire. The Portuguese schemer was always head-coach Andre Villas-Boas’ top choice to replace the outbound Luka Modric and, with Rafa van der Vaart also off, it’s essential that Spurs complete this signing to ensure they have enough creativity to challenge for the top 4 this season. Reports suggest the clubs have agreed a £30m club-record fee for the midfielder.
