BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein has provided updates over Tottenham’s potential deals for Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso.

The Daily Mail claimed on Monday that a £30m deal for Sessegnon should go through before the transfer deadline with Spurs prepared to include Josh Onomah in the deal as a makeweight.

The transfer has been a lot more complicated for Lo Celso with rumours the deal is on and then off all summer – but there has now been positive news over both deals.

Ornstein wrote on Twitter: “Tottenham have reached an agreement with Fulham to sign England U21 left-back Ryan Sessegnon for £25m with #THFC midfielder Josh Onomah joining #FFC as part of the deal.

“Hearing proposed signing of Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso likely to be loan with an obligation to buy.

“There are £5m worth of performance-based add-ons in the Sessegnon deal that could see the final fee paid to Fulham by Tottenham rise to £30m #THFC #FFC.”
