Joao Moutinho: Close to linking up with AVB again at Tottenham

Sky Sports understands Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a club record £22million deal with Porto for Joao Moutinho.

The 25-year-old, one of the stars of Euro 2012, looks to be closing in on a move to White Hart Lane, which will see him reunited with his former Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas actually signed Moutinho for Porto from arch-rivals Sporting Lisbon in 2010, and now he looks set to get his man again.

Porto had previously stood firm on their valuation of Moutinho and were reported to want close to £30million.

However, after lengthy talks Spurs have now come to agreement and struck a deal worth around £22m, which is a club record for the Premier League club.
