Mexican midfielder headed to Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur are set to land another big player this summer with the signing of Barcelona’s attacking midfielder Giovani dos Santos.

The Mexican will sign a contract until 2013 after he completes a medical.

Spurs could end up paying just £8.77m for the 19-year-old.

Dos Santos told The Sun newspaper: “I love Tottenham’s plans, they are very ambitious. I was interested in joining them because they are a team that can compete with the top clubs.

“I know Juande Ramos and, of all the offers I had, this was the most challenging from a sporting point of view.”
