Spurs have bid accepted for Dembele

Fulham are on the brink of losing another of their star players in Moussa Dembele.

A club spokesperson has confirmed a fee has been agreed with Tottenham, who have also been given permission to hold talks with the Belgian midfielder.

With outcast Clint Dempsey seemingly on his way out of Craven Cottage, the loss of Dembele is another blow to manager Martin Jol, whose side crashed out of the Capital One Cup with a 1-0 defeat at Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.

With a reported £33million to spend after the sale this week of Luka Modric to Real Madrid, Dembele is seen as the ideal replacement for the Croatian by Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
