This site broke the news last week that Limassol had opened talks with the Spurs man over a move ahead of the 1 February window cut-off.

The Londoners then gave Georgiou permission to leave after an offer was tabled by the Cypriot outfit.

The winger, who can also play at full-back, has made just one senior appearance for Tottenham, which came in the Champions League in 2017 when Mauricio Pochettino was manager.

Spurs handed the international a new contract in 2019 but Georgiou has been unable to add to that single first-team showing.

With his deal expiring in the summer, his focus has been on securing a move to a club where he can play regular senior football.

The eight-times international, who joined Spurs in 2013 from the Watford academy, has previously had loan spells at Bolton Wanderers and Ipswich Town as well as Levante in Spain.
