Goalkeeper Forster undergoing Spurs medical

Fraser Forster is having a medical at Tottenham ahead of his proposed free transfer.

The goalkeeper is out of contract at Southampton this summer and is poised to sign for the north London club.

Forster was at the club’s training ground on Wednesday under going medical checks and, if there are no unexpected problems, he will become a Spurs player on July 1.

The 34-year-old, who has won six England caps, is set to join as back-up to Hugo Lloris, most likely to play in the domestic cup competitions.

Current number two goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is expected to return to Atalanta at the end of his loan spell and Spurs are keen to replace him with a homegrown option.

Forster leaves St Mary’s after 162 appearances over an eight-year spell. He played 24 times in all competitions last season.
