Nottingham Forest blow as Tottenham ‘growing in confidence’ over Djed Spence deal



A fresh update on Tottenham’s pursuit of Djed Spence has emerged over the weekend and it is not good news for Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest of course secured a return to the Premier League for the first time since 1999 at the end of May, beating Huddersfield Town in the Championship play-off final.

Djed Spence, on loan from Middlesbrough, played a key role in Forest securing a play-off berth. And it was his starring displays for Forest, in both the league and FA Cup, that has caught the eye of a number of clubs.

After securing promotion to the Premier League, there was an expectation that Forest would try and make a permanent move for the right-back.

However, they were facing stiff competition from a Tottenham side who can offer the defender Champions League football.

Now, the Northern Echo report Tottenham’s interest at an advanced stage, and there is a growing confidence within the Spurs hierarchy that they will win the battle to sign the 21-year-old.

In a further blow to Forest, sources claim the newly-promoted side have already begun to make moves for alternative right-back options, with Manchester City’s Issa Kabore the subject of growing interest.

Elsewhere on the Nottingham Forest front, the now Premier League side are said to be keen on Burnley’s Nick Pope.

Burnley were of course relegated from the top-flight this past season and Forest are now expected to try their luck with a low bid, according to the Sun.

However, their report adds that the Clarets want £40m for the shot-stopper, though a compromise is expected to be reached.
