Tottenham have moved closer to completing the signing of Pierre-Emile Højbjerg from Southampton after agreeing to pay £15m for the Denmark international.

Højbjerg, who has one year to run on his Southampton contract, was also the subject of a bid from Everton but it is understood that the former Bayern Munich midfielder has chosen to move to north London to play under José Mourinho. Højbjerg is now expected to agree personal terms and sign a contract with Spurs in the coming days.

Tottenham are also reported to have accepted a £12m bid from Southampton to sign Kyle Walker-Peters, who spent the second half of last season on loan under Ralph Hasenhüttl.

Inter are still interested in signing Tanguy Ndombele despite Tottenham’s insistence that the France midfielder is not for sale, although whether they will make an official approach depends on whether manager Antonio Conte’s long-term future is resolved in the coming weeks.
