DONE DEAL? Serge Aurier secures visa for Tottenham move today

Serge Aurier is reportedly on the verge of finalising a move to Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain after being granted a work permit.

Spurs agreed a £23m deal with PSG for Aurier last week, and a five-year contract with the Ivorian right-back, but the transfer was held up due to the player's conviction record.

Tottenham were left sweating on getting worldwide clearance for the Ivory Coast defender - after he was found guilty of assaulting a police officer previous year. On the ruling of the Home Office, the player was barred from entry to the United Kingdom for PSG's Champions League game at Arsenal last November.

Serge Aurier has sent social media into meltdown with a tweet suggesting he could finally get his move to the Premier League.

Complications over the Ivory Coast international's work permit threatened to derail the deal due to issues surrounding a conviction in France for assaulting a police officer a year ago.

Aurier has played his entire professional career in France, joining PSG in the summer of 2015 after starting his career with Lens and then moving on to Toulouse.

Pochettino now looks set to fill the void left by Kyle Walker's transfer to Manchester City earlier in transfer window.

Tottenham tied up two signings last week as goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and defender Davinson Sanchez joined from Southampton and Ajax respectively, but manager Mauricio Pochettino is seemingly on the verge of another addition.
