Report: Tottenham agree Etete sale; but deal includes buy-back clause

Tottenham Hotspur may be on the verge of agreeing a deal to sell Kion Etete, but it seems that they are not ready to cut ties entirely, with his move to Cardiff City set to include a buy-back clause, according to a report from Wales Online.

Etete looks destined to become one of the next players to leave Spurs this summer. Reports on Wednesday reported that he was about to undergo a medical with the Bluebirds.

And Wales Online has now provided a couple of further details regarding the possible move. They claim that Steve Morison’s men are ready to pay up to £500,000 for the 20-year-old.

And interestingly, the report adds that the deal is believed to include a buy-back clause.

Etete deal to include buy-back clause

A move to the Welsh capital appears to be a good one for the youngster. He is now set to play at his highest level yet, after loan spells in League One and Two.

You can understand why Spurs have let him go. Antonio Conte obviously has one of the world’s best strikers in his ranks. Meanwhile, they have a frightening amount of depth thanks to the likes of Son Heung-min and Richarlison.

And in the pecking order of youngsters, it seems that Dane Scarlett is the big hope in North London. And Troy Parrott has fought his way back into the equation after an impressive loan last season.

But clearly, Tottenham feel it is too soon to write Etete off entirely. And that could be an incredibly clever decision.

Perhaps the fee is slightly lower because of the clause. But £500,000 is hardly going to transform Tottenham’s summer plans anyway.

Meanwhile, they have left the door open in case Etete realises his ‘outstanding‘ potential.
