Tottenham have agreed fees with Southampton to sign Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and for Kyle Walker-Peters to move in the other direction. Hojbjerg will become Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the summer in a deal starting at £15 million with add-ons, while Walker-Peters’ loan at St Mary’s will be made permanent for £12m before performance clauses. The deals were treated separately, rather than a swap, with the intention of concluding both this week once medicals are completed. Hojbjerg, 24, had one year left on his contract at St Mary’s and publicly stated he wanted to move to a club playing European football, and he will be playing in the Europa League with Spurs next season. The Denmark international had the captaincy taken away from him when he refused to commit his future to the club and Spurs held the upper hand in negotiations as the player wanted to join them ahead of Everton and Ajax.
Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will complete his move to Tottenham this weekend, with Kyle Walker-Peters heading the other way.Both deals have been kept separate but fees of £15million for the Dane and £12m for the English defender have been agreed.
Fulham are pressing ahead with permanent transfers for midfield duo Harrison Reed and Harry Arter and a new contract for manager Scott Parker.The pair, who spent last season on loan from Southampton and Bournemouth respectively, are both firm favourites of Parker and keen on a stay at Craven Cottage.
