Nacer Chadli: Deal agreed to take the Belgian winger to White Hart Lane

Tottenham have confirmed an agreement has been reached with FC Twente to sign Belgium international winger Nacer Chadli.

The 23-year-old Chadli, who will discuss personal terms and undergo a medical with the Barclays Premier League club, has spent three seasons in the Eredivisie with Twente and scored in both Champions League ties against Spurs during the 2010-11 season.

If the deal is completed without a hitch the winger will join his new team-mates in Hong Kong, where Andre Villas-Boas's side will compete in the Barclays Asia Trophy.

Chadli has 14 international caps after initially representing Morocco in a non-competitive fixture before deciding to turn out for Belgium.

He made a name for himself at AGOVV Apeldoorn before enjoying a successful spell in Holland, scoring 31 goals for Twente and prompting Spurs to make their move - with the transfer fee reported to be around £7million.

He is likely to become Villas-Boas' second major acquisition of the summer following the signing of Brazil international midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians earlier this month.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
