porting manager Ruben Amorim has wished Pedro Porro luck at Tottenham as the Spanish international closes in on a move to the Premier League.

After a protracted saga, Spurs finally look set to land their leading January target on deadline day.

Porro is currently in the final stages of his medical at the club’s Hotspur Way training base ahead of joining Spurs, albeit initially on loan.

The former Manchester City youngster will then sign a five-and-a-half-year deal in north London and will cost in the region of £39m.

Porro, alongside fellow January arrival Arnaut Danjuma, will be added to Spurs’ Champions League squad as non-homegrown players, taking spots previously filled by Matt Doherty and Bryan Gil.

The former is in Spain to complete a loan move to Atletico Madrid, while the latter sealed a return to Sevilla on a temporary basis on Monday evening.

Speaking at Sporting’s pre-match press conference, Amorim said: “In football, we get used to change from a very young age. One day they are our children, our best friends, and now he is Conte’s son. If we play against him, I already know his difficulties.

“We remain friends, I move on, now my favourites are others. My players are always the best in the world. Porro will be a player for another team and I wish them the best of luck.”
