It is just a matter of time until Gray is officially announced as a new Tottenham player after a fee in the region of £40 million was agreed with Leeds for the 18-year-old.

In a separate transaction, Leeds are set to complete the permanent signing of Rodon for £10 million, in what is a decent sweetener for supporters after losing the club’s best academy graduate in several years.

The two clubs have clearly struck up a decent relationship behind-the-scenes which has allowed Spurs to swoop in at the 11th hour and hijack Brentford’s deal for Gray.

Angus Kinnear is believed to know Spurs owner Daniel Levy well, while Leeds’ technical director Gretar Steinsson was at the North London club until his move to Elland Road last summer.
