Tottenham are waiting to hear if Serge Aurier will be granted a work permit so that he can join the club from Paris-Saint Germain, according to multiple reports.

The Telegraph claims Spurs “completed the outline of a deal for Aurier last Monday,” but they must wait for the Home Office’s decision on whether the Ivorian can sign for the club.

Last year, Aurier was handed a two-month ‘convertible’ prison sentence for assaulting a French police officer. He is unlikely to serve that sentence, but it could stop him being granted a move to a club in another country.

Jack Pitt-Brooke, the journalist who wrote the story for the Telegraph, has been told Aurier will only be granted a work permit on an “exceptional basis.”

Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas has backed up those claims.

Aurier, 24, will cost Tottenham £23m if he does join the club. The right-back has also attracted interest from Manchester United, but Spurs are believed to be in pole position to sign him.

  1. Could be a lucky escape…
    everything I`ve read about this guy doesn`t sound great: battering a policeman, falling out with team mates and manager, taking 10 minutes to come on as sub in game last year, homophobic comments online..and now, apparently after agreeing a fee & terms with us, comes out in the press and says he would rather play for manu!
    as much as we need a RB (Trips was shocking on Sunday!)….do we want this guy, sounds like he could be another Adebayor to me?
