The 21-year-old right wing-back caught Antonio Conte’s eye last season as he helped Nottingham Forest to seal promotion while on loan.

Talks have been taking place for weeks but the two clubs were still believed to be way-off agreeing a fee.

The North East team were demanding £15million plus add-ons with Boro boss Chris Wilder recently insisting that they would not be forced into selling him below their asking price.

Spence has returned to the North East for pre-season training but has been left behind as the rest of Boro’s squad headed off on tour to Portugal last weekend.

However, now he finally looks set to get his desired move away from the Riverside.

The Athletic states that Spurs are “on the verge of a total agreement with Middlesbrough” after talks between their chairman Daniel Levy, Boro counterpart Steve Gibson and the player's representative Scott Smith led to a breakthrough.

Now the plan is for Spence to undergo a medical within the next two days if everything goes to plan.

Spence was released by Fulham back in 2018 but was snapped-up by Boro on a free.

He was then handed his opportunity in the first-team under Jonathan Woodgate and impressed enough to win the EFL Young Player of the Month in January 2020.

But his inconsistent form led to Woodgate’s replacement Neil Warnock sanctioning his departure on loan to Forest a year ago.

Spence made 39 appearances for Steve Cooper’s team to help them to play-off success and the Premier League.

His displays also earned him international honours with England U21s, where he has gone on to win three caps.
