Nacer Chadli: Tottenham agree deal to sign FC Twente winger

Tottenham are close to completing the signing of Belgium winger Nacer Chadli from Dutch club FC Twente.

Spurs have agreed an undisclosed fee, thought to be about £7m, for the 23-year-old, who has won 14 caps.

He will join Andre Villas-Boas’s squad for pre-season training in Hong Kong next week, once he agrees personal terms and passes a medical.

Chadli joined FC Twente from AGOVV Apeldoorn in 2010 and has played 106 times for the club, scoring 31 goals.

Two of those came in Champions League matches against Spurs in the 2010-11 season.

Chadli will become the third Belgian player at White Hart Lane, alongside Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen.

And he will be Villas-Boas’s second summer signing after the £17m capture of Brazil midfielder Paulinho.
