£9 million summer signing set to leave Spurs before window closes

Tottenham are on the brink of selling £9 million summer signing Giovani Dos Santos to Portsmouth. The Mexico international has had failed to make an impact in North London since his summer move from La Liga giants Barcelona and now Spurs are ready to sell him for £7 million to Pompey.

The 19-year old was brought to White Hart Lane by former Spurs boss Juande Ramos and unfortunately for him, he has only made a handful of appearances under current Spurs boss Harry Redknapp. It was speculated earlier this month that Dos Santos may move back to Mexico, however Pompey boss Tony Adams looks set to welcome him to Fratton Park before the transfer window closes on Monday.

It is a real shame that it didn't work out for the lad at Spurs. When he signed for the club in the summer, I must admit, I was tipping him for big things in the Premier League, however that hasn't really happened. You never know, with first team football at Pompey virtually guaranteed, he may still prove his critics wrong in England. I for one hope he does.

Dos Santos costs just £4.5 million in this season's "You the Manager". Follow the link below to put him in your team.

    He was bought for £4.7 million, which could rise based on appearences, which he has few of. Plus Barca has a 20% sell on clause. Check the facts

    This could prove to be a huge mistake. Considering he's only just got fit. I cant understand how Arry has seen enough of him to decide. Barca wanted to keep him, and we got him. What do Barca know? all thier players are average. Eh?
