Sandro closes in on Spurs switch

BY foxsports • March 18, 2010

Harry Redknapp has held a long-term interest in the 21-year-old and came close to agreeing a deal last summer and again in the January transfer window. All parties are now reported to have reached an accord for Sandro to seal his switch to White Hart Lane, with contracts on the verge of being signed. Piffero confirmed that a deal was close, and it now appears to be on the brink of completion. He said: "I think that the transfer of Sandro to Tottenham will be arranged immediately because we are very near to the end of the agreement. "I think we will put pen to paper before next weekend. "Personally, I think that nothing can change this because there has been a total agreement between all the parties involved in the negotiation." The one-cap midfielder will require a work permit to complete his move to the Premier League, which is an additional hurdle Spurs need to overcome.
