According to Sky Sports, Gedson Fernandes is on the brink of being announced as a Tottenham player, after completing a medical yesterday.
This is a loan deal with an option to buy the 21-year-old for £56million.
The lad would appear not to have featured in the last 7 Benfica matches. This may be an opportunity for José Mourinho to earn his corn.
This image recently emerged on social media, showing Gedson watching Spurs getting beaten at home by Chelsea, which would appear to not have deterred the lad from signing up.
Despite the desperate need for fresh meat in the Spurs squad, this transfer does feel a little underwhelming.
The Wrong Fernandes makes for a cheap byline, but it might also be true. Bruno Fernandes arguably a more obvious buy – given the need to improve our leaky backline.
