Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Tottenham have agreed personal terms with Manor Solomon and a deal is expected to go through in the following days.

Ange Postecoglou will be keen on getting the 23-year-old through the door as his squad rebuild starts to take shape.

Solomon has a year remaining on his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk but FIFA regulations allowed him to unilaterally suspend it due to the Russo-Ukraine war.

Romano has provided an update on the situation, with Tottenham now in pole position to land a deal.

“Tottenham have reached verbal agreement with Manor Solomon, here we go,” Romano confirmed on Twitter.

“Deal in place as medical tests have been scheduled for next week. Solomon agreed personal terms.

“He’s joining Spurs as free agent — if all goes to plan with Shakhtar and FIFA rules.”

The 23-year-old impressed while on loan with Fulham last season, scoring four league goals in just 563 minutes.

Solomon was often used as a super-sub while at Craven Cottage as 15 of his 19 Premier League appearances came from the bench.

Ben Jacobs clarified that Solomon is expected to sign a four-year deal at Spurs as the winger prepares to join Postecoglou’s side.

Fulham were interested in signing the 23-year-old on a permanent basis, but Spurs managed to hijack the deal.

Marco Silva regularly spoke highly of the winger, especially during the second half of the season when he started to hit some form.

“When a player performs well coming off the bench of course he is showing the quality that he has, how he is helping the team as well,” Silva told reporters in February.

“Of course Manor is not ready for 90 minutes but he needs minutes to play with this intensity because it is the Premier League and when you are out from playing for three or four months it is always difficult.

“His one-v-one situation is really strong and coming from the left he is important.”
