According to Kaveh Solhekol, FC Metz Chairman Bernard Serin has held some seriously productive talks with Tottenham regarding Pape Sarr.

What’s the story?

Well, whatever Spurs said to Serin in the meeting on Monday must’ve been pretty strong.

Solhekol – a reporter for Sky Sports – claims that Serin had two more meetings with Premier League clubs arranged after meeting Spurs.

However, a deal was agreed with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side ‘there and then’ and Serin decided not to attend his other meetings.

Solhekol adds that the 18-year-old will arrive in N17 on a six-year deal, which signals a real show of faith in the teenager from Tottenham.

Whether it was Daniel Levy, Fabio Paratici or both involved in negotiations, they’ve done a fine job.

Sadly, Tottenham supporters might have to wait to see the 2-cap Senegal international play.

Why? Well, Solhekol adds that Sarr will return to FC Metz on loan as part of the agreement.

That may annoy some fans, but it’s for the best.

Sarr is in a delicate stage of his development, and disrupting his rhythm would be a foolish thing to do.

Despite his age, he made 26 appearances for FC Metz last season, and it’s vital that he continues to receive regular first-team football.

In north London, with more competition for places, Nuno might not be able to guarantee him regular action.

As a result, it’s a very wise move to send Sarr back to FC Metz, in our view.
