Middlesbrough head coach Chris Wilder has confirmed that right wing-back Djed Spence will be sold if the amount set by the club is paid.
Last week’s Football Insider reported that Tottenham was absolutely certain to sign the young Englishman on a permanent basis. The deal was denied by journalist Fabrizio Romano, saying that Spurs had not yet sent a transfer request for the player.
As reported by The Telegraph, Middlesbrough has set a price tag of £15-20 million for the player. In turn, the team from North London offered only £10 million.
According to Sky Sports, there will be further negotiations led by Daniel Levy. The Middlesbrough manager has made it clear that all three parties will be happy if a fair amount is paid.
On BBC Radio Tees Sport (via Football London) he said:
“Djed has made it clear that he wants to go play in the Premier League, he’s earned that opportunity which he has done. You cannot get away from the fact that he’s had an incredible season and with that comes interest but it has to be at that right price.”
