Tottenham have confirmed the appointment of Paul Mitchell as their new Head of Recruitment and Analysis.
Leeds United striker Nicky Ajose has joined Sky Bet League One side Crewe on an emergency loan deal.
The 24-year-old played no part in Sporting's 2-1 Segunda Division win at Numancia at the weekend as negotiations with Celtic gathered pace.
And Sporting's manager, Abelardo Fernandez, admitted that he is planning for a future without the talented hitman.
"Stefan is no longer part of my plans," Fernandez told reporters in Spain.
"His transfer is a done deal and because we don't want to endanger his move, he is not training with the players anymore."
The fee is reportedly set to be around the £3million mark, and Scepovic could be in the Hoops squad for Sunday's Scottish Premiership clash at Dundee.
