Tottenham Hotspur look set to complete a deal for Mali midfielder, Yves Bissouma from fellow Premier League outfit, Brighton & Hove Albion.

The two clubs have agreed on a fee in excess of £30m for the 25-year-old midfielder who still has a year to run on his current contract with the south-coast club.

Bissouma – who has made 123 appearances for the Seagulls – has previously been linked with a move to Tottenham’s North London rivals, Arsenal. However, Lilywwhites boss, Antonio Conte appears to have secured his third summer signing with the deal expected to be completed later this week, subject to personal terms between the club and player.

Capped 27-times by Mali, Bissouma helped Brighton to a ninth-place finish last season. The highest in their 120-year history.
