Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg set for dream Tottenham transfer after Southampton accept new bid of £20m plus add-ons

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set to get his dream move to Tottenham at last

PIERRE-EMILE HOJBJERG is set to get his dream move to Tottenham at last – after the North Londoners upped their bid.

Saints are understood to have accepted a fee of around £20million plus add-ons for the wantaway Dane.

While the South-Coast club have also agreed a £12m deal to bring full-back Kyle Walker-Peters the other way.

Hojbjerg, 25, was up for sale after making it clear he would not extend his contract, which had one more year to run.

He always had his heart set on Spurs, despite interest from Everton.

There were fears he would miss out on the switch to Jose Mourinho’s side with Spurs refusing to stump up the required cash.

But an agreement has now been reached and a deal is expected to be concluded over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Saints always wanted to bring in Walker-Peters, who spent the second half of the campaign on loan at St Mary’s.

They did not want to be held to ransom over the 23-year-old though and were linked to alternatives in Nottingham Forest’s Matty Cash and West Ham’s Ryan Fredericks.

But a switch has now been agreed and KWP is now set to be Saints player in the coming days.
