Yevhen Konoplyanka travelling to England to take medical & sign contract at Spurs [Eurosport]

Eurosport Turkey yesterday reported that Tottenham are close to landing Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

The skilful 25 year old Dnipro star has been heavily linked to both Sevilla and Stoke but is reported to prefer a move to White Hart Lane.

With just days left on his Dnipro contract, it appears Yevhen Konoplyanka is travelling to England in order to complete a medical at Spurs.

He is expected to sign a contract at Tottenham in the “coming days” according to Eurosport Turkey.

Linked heavily to Liverpool and Spurs in the past, Konoplyanka has a Turkish agent who has likely fed the story to the Turkish media.

Having helped Dnipro reach the Europa League final this season, Konoplyanka would surely be a regular under Mauricio Pochettino in North London.

He would rival the likes of Erik Lamela, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli for a place in the starting XI.
