Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is travelling to Hong Kong to undergo a medical ahead of a move to Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F.

Spurs accepted an offer from Chinese Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan last week, and it has now emerged that Guangzhou - 75 miles north-west of Hong Kong - have also tabled an acceptable offer.

With the 31-year-old Belgium international now set to bring an end to his six-and-a-half-year spell in north London.

Dembele's Tottenham contract expires at the end of the season, which would have allowed him to leave the Premier League club on a free transfer.

However, Tottenham have made the decision to allow Dembele to leave now so they receive a transfer fee for a man who has made 249 appearances for the club.

Dembele, who has not played for Spurs since November due to an ankle injury, has been keen on a move to China since the summer.
