Tottenham's giant striker Kion Etete is in talks to join Cardiff City in a deal worth £500,000, with Spurs set to include a buy-back clause for the 6ft 6in forward
- The 20-year-old is undergoing a medical ahead of agreeing terms
- Tottenham it is understood are going to insert a buy-back clause in the deal
- Player is leaving for first team opportunities after path blocked by Kane at Spurs
The 20-year old is undergoing a medical today ahead of agreeing terms and it is understood Tottenham will also insert a buy-back clause.
Etete is well regarded at Tottenham but the prospect of him pushing past Harry Kane into the first team set up is slim and he has taken the decision to move to the Championship for a greater chance of regular first team football.
Kion Etete (L) is notable for his size and will provide Cardiff with a physical presence up front
Etete joined Spurs from Notts County after impressing in a trial and has had loan spells with Northampton Town and Cheltenham last season.
The forward scored three goals in both League One and Two last season, with Cardiff clearly having seen enough to make him their 15th signing of the summer.
It has been all change at Cardiff this summer, with 15 players having been allowed to leave by manager Steve Morison who is overseeing something of a revolution at the club.
Cardiff enjoyed a stellar start to the Championship season when they beat promotion hopefuls Norwich City in front of a raucous home crowd.
The 20-year-old spent last season partly on loan at Northampton Town in League Two
Last season proved a disappointing one for the Bluebirds but they hope the significant shake up of their squad will have them aiming higher in the table.
The south Wales club head to Reading over the weekend before returning to Cardiff City Stadium to play host to Birmingham next week.
Tottenham, meanwhile, get their Premier League campaign underway this weekend at home to Southampton before facing Chelsea in a mouth-watering early season clash at Stamford Bridge.
