SERGE AURIER IS set to complete a £23 million (€25m) move to Tottenham Hotspur from Paris Saint-Germain after being granted a work permit by the UK Home Office.

The 24-year-old’s move was delayed due to an ongoing legal issue after being given a suspended two-year prison sentence for allegedly attacking a police officer in 2016.

The incident saw him barred from entering the UK in November last year when PSG faced Arsenal in the Champions League.

However, after also being linked with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, the Ivory Coast international now looks poised to finalise his switch to Spurs.
