Alex Pritchard is set to undergo a Burnley medical and complete a loan move from Tottenham, Football Insider sources understand.
Spurs have reached an agreement with the Championship high flyers for the England Under-21 international to join on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old playmaker has just returned to training after three months out with an ankle injury.
Pritchard is highly regarded by Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching staff but they have decided he can go out on loan to get more first-team experience under his belt.

A number of Premier League and Championship clubs have registered an interest in the former England Under-21 international, with Fulham asking for him to be included in the Moussa Dembele deal.
Pritchard had a successful loan spell at Brentford last season, where he scored 12 goals and supplied seven assists in 47 appearances for the Championship club.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Dembele has passed a Spurs medical and is putting the finishing touches to a move that is worth an initial £1.7million.
