Tottenham duo set for medicals as transfers finalised

Tottenham duo Kyle Walker-Peters and Luke Amos are on the verge of completing permanent exits, Football Insider understands.

Right-back Walker-Peters, 23, is in advanced talks to sign for Southampton after impressing on loan in the second half of 2019-20.

Midfielder Amos, 23, is close to converting his 19-20 QPR loan into a full-time move after being given the green light over the weekend.

A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that agreements are close with Southampton and QPR and both players are set for medicals at their new clubs this week.

The Saints will pay around £12m for Walker-Peters while Amos is set to cost less than £1m.

Walker-Peters has been given the go-ahead from Jose Mourinho to leave Spurs after failing to make any headway under the manager appointed last November.

Southampton refused to meet Spurs’ £15m asking price for Walker-Peters in January and there was no option or obligation in the loan for him to sign permanently at the end of the season.

The asking price has now dropped following the pandemic even though the defender started six of the Saints’ last seven league matches of 2019-20.

Amos was a mainstay while on loan last season at QPR, making 26 league starts among 34 appearances across all competitions.

The Spurs academy product, who has entered the final year of his contract, had been on the verge of making a first-team breakthrough at Tottenham when he suffered a serious knee injury in 2018 after impressing former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

In other news, Tottenham have agreed the terms of a £45m signing.
