Jermain Defoe is returning to Tottenham Hotspur after a £15m fee for the Portsmouth striker was agreed.
Defoe will undergo a medical on Tuesday after personal terms were agreed between the two parties.
“Portsmouth can confirm a fee has been agreed with Tottenham for Jermain Defoe,” read a statement from Pompey.
The 26-year-old striker joined Portsmouth from Spurs less than a year ago in a deal worth £7.5m. Portsmouth are said to still owe the bulk of that fee to the White Hart Lane club as well as money for Younes Kaboul and Pedro Mendes (now with Rangers) – who both made the move between the two clubs.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Pompey chief executive Peter Storrie have negotiated a deal which will see Pompey receive additional cash, giving them a profit on a player who has been in prolific form in his spell on the South Coast.
Harry Redknapp, who bought Defoe to Portsmouth from Spurs, before his defection to the London club, is also keen to sign a left-sided midfielder in the current transfer window but Middlesbrough have already turned down a £6m bid for Stewart Downing from Spurs.
He is closer to signing free agent Stephen Appiah, who is training with Spurs this week.
The 28-year-old, released by Fenerbahce in the summer, has suffered knee problems in the past, but Redknapp is hopeful of arranging a deal.
