A Man City forward has pre-agreed a deal that’ll see him join Tottenham this summer in a move that’s being heralded as a ‘major coup’ for Daniel Levy and co.

It’s been a chastening season for Spurs, with their wait for major silverware destined to drag on for at least one more year.

Antonio Conte left by mutual consent on Sunday night. The remainder of Tottenham’s season to be overseen by Cristian Stellini with help from Ryan Mason.

A place in next season’s Champions League is all that’s left to fight for. Clearly, appointing the right manager and a successful summer window are required to put Tottenham back on track.

However, every club must always keep one eye on the future and per Football London, that’s exactly what Spurs have done.

Indeed, they report Tottenham have struck an agreement to pluck 16-year-old Man City forward, Herbie James, out of the Etihad this summer.

A three-year contract has been pre-agreed, with James due to link up with Spurs this summer. Fellow Premier League sides Everton and Wolves were successfully fended off by Tottenham.

Man City have cultivated a well-earned reputation for being an excellent place for young talent to develop in recent times.

Indeed, Phil Foden is the stand-out example, though Rico Lewis and Cole Palmer have both broken into Pep Guardiola’s first-team plans too.

Tottenham will hope James is cut from the same cloth and his move to Spurs is labelled a ‘major coup’ and a ‘smart piece of business’ by the report.
