Tottenham are on the verge of completing a transfer for FC Twente's Nacer Chadli.
Spurs announced via their official website that they have agreed a deal with the Dutch club for the winger.
So long as Chadli agrees terms and passes a medical, "the Belgian international winger will join up with the squad for preseason training in Hong Kong next week."
Chadli will be manager Andre Villas-Boas' second signing of the summer, following the purchase of Paulinho from Corinthians.
The Brazilian is still on holiday following his Confederations Cup campaign and is likely to join up with his new teammates following their return from the Barclays Asia Trophy.

Tottenham could be facing a battle to sign FC Twente's Nacer Chadli.
The Mirror's Darren Lewis reports that Swansea City and Shakhtar Donetsk are also interested in the Belgian winger.
Unlike Spurs, those two clubs have made actual offers. A fact revealed by Twente chairman Joop Munsterman.
“We hear a lot about Tottenham but the club will have to put up a concrete offer first," revealed Munsterman.
“So far, only Swansea and Shakhtar have made concrete offers and are still options, even though Nacer decided not to go to them."
Spurs have largely been biding their time in the transfer market so far. If they really want Chadli it seems the player at least may be keen on a move.
Elsewhere, the Daily Mail's Graeme Yorke believes that Fulham may not be the frontrunner for Tom Huddlestone's signature.
Despite seemingly being nailed on for a move to Sunderland, the involved parties are said to have been unable to agree a deal.
