Capoue will join Tottenham, says Toulouse president

Toulouse president Olivier Sadran has claimed that midfielder Etienne Capoue will join Tottenham.

The highly rated 24-year-old had been linked with Cardiff City and Atletico Madrid, with Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay revealing that the Welsh side had reached an agreement with the Ligue 1 outfit on July 29.

But Spurs appear to have taken the lead in the race to sign Capoue, with the French club's president announcing that the France international is set to move to White Hart Lane

"He will go [to Tottenham]," Sadran told RMC Sport when asked about a rumored move to north London.

Reports in France claim Tottenham has agreed an 10 million-euro deal for the defensive midfielder and he could undergo a medical on Thursday or Friday.

Capoue was one of Ligue 1's leading performers last season, scoring seven goals in 34 league outings as Toulouse finished 10th.

Andre Villas-Boas has already been active in the transfer market this summer, strengthening his squad with Confederations Cup star Paulinho, Twente's Nacer Chadli and 30 million-euro record signing Roberto Soldado from Valencia.
