TOT­TEN­HAM are close to get­ting their hands on yet an­other of the Foot­ball League’s bright­est prospects – a se­cond Ful­ham star by the name of Moussa Dem­bele!

The Whites striker is set to leave Craven Cot­tage for £5m, but their fans got a glimpse of the fu­ture af­ter Ful­ham loan player Jack Grim­mer’s win­ner helped Shrews­bury sink Sh­effield Wed­nes­day 3-2 in the FA Cup fourth round.

Highly-rated French for­ward Dem­bele is ready to sign for Spurs and join up with Bel­gium mid­fielder Mousa Dem­bele – who also signed from Ful­ham, back in 2012.

The 19-year-old joined Ful­ham from Paris St-Ger­main four years ago and is this week­end un­der­go­ing a med­i­cal at White Hart Lane.

It would prove to be great busi­ness for the Cham­pi­onship club. They will pocket a large sum for a player out of con­tract in four months and will keep hold of him on loan un­til the end of the sea­son.

Also on the move is Jor­dan Rhodes, who has been in the north-east for talks with Mid­dles­brough af­ter Black­burn Rovers ac­cepted the ti­tle-chasers’ £9m bid, ris­ing to £11m with add-ons.
