Sources: Tottenham ready to accept Harvey White offer

Tottenham have told rising star Harvey White he is free to complete a loan move before the window shuts, sources have told Football Insider.

The Championship outfit had made an enquiry for White but are now prioritising a defensive signing rather than a midfielder.

White, who has come through the youth ranks at Tottenham, made his Premier League debut earlier this month (4 January) in the win at Crystal Palace.

White is also a fixture for Tottenham’s Under-21 side, and has consistently impressed at that level.
