More new arrivals set to join.
Tottenham Hotspur are set to continue their heavy summer spending spree by signing Botev Plovdiv playmaker Todor Nedelev, according to Bulgarian news source ????.
The 20-year-old was in impressive form for his club last season, notching nine goals and 12 assists that has seen him lauded as one of the brightest talents that the country has produced in a long time.
Reports in Bulgaria have suggested that a deal of around €5. 7 million has been agreed as representatives from the Bulgarian side flew to London recently to meet with Spurs officials and thrash out a contract.
Bundesliga side Werder Bremen had also been keen, tabling an offer of €2.6 million, which was promptly rejected, whilst an unnamed French side also made an offer, but instead of bettering Werder’s proposal, simply inserted a clause saying that 40% of his resale would go back to Botev.
Comfortable on the ball, and possessing a blistering long range shot, the Bulgarian international will see himself become the most expensive player to leave the country for an overseas side in their history should a deal be completed. The previous records are held by Hristo Stoichkov (€4 million from CSKA Sofia to Barcelona) and Georgi Ivanov (€4.1 million from Levski to Rennes).
