Harry closes in on talented youngster.
Tottenham are poised to complete a deal for £14million Brazil star Sandro in the New Year.
The Internacional midfielder has long been linked with a move to White Hart Lane but found his path to the Premier League blocked by work permit regulations.
But after being named in the national squad by Brazil boss Dunga for the recent World Cup qualifiers, Sandro’s case for a move to England has strengthened.
Sandro, 20, burst onto the scene while captaining the Brazil Under 20 team and has also been linked with both Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Harry Redknapp has been linked with a move for this young Brazilian for some time but it does seem that a move is getting closer to reality. The Tottenham boss pointed out that he felt that the centre of his midfield was a little thin and that fact coupled with his obvious admiration for the Internacional man seem to suggest a deal could well be done this January.
A rejuvenated Tom Huddlestone and the determined Wilson Palacios have more often than not been the midfield pairing that has worked this season and Jermaine Jenas is also on hand to play in the same position as well as out on wide midfield but the club could do with another out and out defensive midfielder and Sandro appears to be the most likely addition to the White Hart Lane squad.
