Tottenham have agreed a deal for Brazil international Sandro to join the club from Internacional in the summer, subject to a medical.
Spurs have been chasing Sandro since last summer and Inter announced overnight that a deal had been agreed for the 21-year-old. Manager Harry Redknapp confirmed on Tuesday morning that the Barclays Premier League outfit were on the verge of completing the deal, and the club later announced an agreement had been reached.
"We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Internacional for the transfer of Sandro to the club, subject to the player passing a medical examination," read a statement on www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
The statement continued: "The Brazil international will join up with our squad following the conclusion of Internacional's Copa Libertadores campaign this summer."
Redknapp spoke of his excitement about the prospect of bringing Sandro on board for next season, providing he passes a medical and is awarded a work permit.
"It would be fantastic," said Redknapp.
"The chairman has been dealing with it. I got a phone call this morning from the chairman saying that he thought we were close to doing it.
"Hopefully it will get done now and it will be a good signing.
"He is an outstanding young player. He is on the verge of the Brazilian team. He has already played for Brazil and captained the Under-18s, 19s and 21s.
"He is strong. He looks a very, very good player so I am looking forward to getting him here."
