Tottenham have confirmed an agreement has been reached with FC Twente to sign Belgium international winger Nacer Chadli.

The 23-year-old Chadli, who will discuss personal terms and undergo a medical with the Barclays Premier League club, has spent three seasons in the Eredivisie with Twente and scored in both Champions League ties against Spurs during the 2010-11 season.

If the deal is completed without a hitch the winger will join his new team-mates in Hong Kong, where Andre Villas-Boas's side will compete in the Barclays Asia Trophy.

Chadli has 14 international caps after initially representing Morocco in a non-competitive fixture before deciding to turn out for Belgium.

He made a name for himself at AGOVV Apeldoorn before enjoying a successful spell in Holland, scoring 31 goals for Twente and prompting Spurs to make their move - with the transfer fee reported to be around £7million.

He is likely to become Villas-Boas' second major acquisition of the summer following the signing of Brazil international midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians earlier this month.
