Tottenham and Boro apart in Spence valuation

Tottenham and Boro apart in Spence valuation
Tottenham and Middlesbrough remain apart in their valuations of Djed Spence after the latest round of negotiations. 

Officials from both clubs are understood to have met in London on Thursday but were unable to find an agreement.

Chairman Daniel Levy is understood to be personally leading the club's pursuit of the England U21 right-back, leaving Fabio Paratici to concentrate on other targets.

Initial talks between Spurs and Boro were not successful in finding an agreement, with the north London club indicating they believe his worth to be in excess of £10m.

Boro, however, want at least £15m plus add-ons - so the conversation did not go further.

Spurs remain very interested in Spence and the player wants the move - but the North London club are prepared to move on if no deal can be struck and do have other options.
