Topal has reached an agreement-in-principle with Tottenham according to the Fanatik sports newspaper. The 30-year-old’s agent Batur Altiparmak is however, remaining coy over the latest transfer rumour and refused to rule out the possibility that he may leave.

Altiparmak told “Everybody writes something different every other day so I am not going to respond to every transfer rumour.
