| Latest News Headlines | abc News
Ottenham have had Lewes accept a six-figure offer for Non-League star Ollie Tanner.
The 19-year-old winger is also wanted by other Premier League and Championship clubs but Spurs have agreed a package worth around £100,000 which includes a selling fee of between 10 and 20% for the Isthmian League Premier Division club.
Tanner has been training with the Spurs development squad for a fortnight, impressing the coaches, but has yet to decide on his next club.
The teenager – formerly on the books at Arsenal and Charlton – picked up the injury in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Cray Wanderers which could complicate a move.
Spurs have a vacancy on the wing in their Under-23 squad after selling Dilan Markanday to Championship promotion hopefuls Blackburn Rovers earlier this month.
Tanner was watched by Spurs academy chief Chris Powell after being recommended by Lewes boss Tony Russell.
Brighton reportedly saw a bid rejected which would have seen Tanner stay at Lewes on loan for the rest of the season.
