Tottenham are reportedly closing in on a move for teenage Leeds starlet Archie Gray.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano say the 18-year-old is set for a medical at Spurs’ training ground after a deal worth an estimated £30-40million was agreed.

Defender Joe Rodon will head the other way to Elland Road following a successful loan spell there last season.

Midfielder Gray, who enjoyed a stunning breakthrough campaign in the Championship, was being chased by a number of Premier League clubs such as Chelsea and Liverpool.

London rivals Brentford looked to have secured an eye-catching swoop for the England Under-21s international after personal terms were agreed over the weekend.

But after Leeds rejected the Bees’ bid, it looks to be Spurs who have won the race, with the teenager said to have signed a long-term deal in North London.

Gray was a near ever-present for the Whites last term, making 52 appearances in all competitions, predominantly in midfield but also at right-back.

Wales international Rodon, 26, will sign for Leeds in a separate deal thought to be around £10m.

The Yorkshire club were under pressure to balance the books to pass profit and sustainability regulations after losing in the play-off final to Southampton.
