Spurs close in on Robinson

Last updated at 17:28 12 May 2004

Tottenham are close to agreeing a deal with Leeds to sign goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

The 24-year-old England international is one of Leeds' prized assets and had been expected to leave Elland Road since the club's relegation to the Nationwide First Division was confirmed.

Robinson had been set to join Spurs during the January transfer window but the move fell through when it was clear he would not be able to rejoin Leeds on loan until the end of the season.

"We are in advanced talks but nothing is signed, sealed or delivered," chairman Gerald Krasner told the club's official website, leedsunited.com.

"Tottenham have expressed an interest, and put forward a figure but we cannot complete any deal at this stage, we hope to do that early next week."
