Player signed a Tottenham deal until 2026, before move was hijacked


Dean Jones has told Give Me Sport that Adama Traore had agreed to sign a contract until June 2026 at Tottenham – only for Barcelona to hijack a move. The Spain star is expected to now return to the Nou Camp, from Wolves.

Traore, who turned 26 earlier this week, was said to be on the verge of a move to Tottenham from Wolves. The ex-Barcelona ace has been linked with a move to Spurs for the past couple of windows, but Barca are on pole.

Not only has Tottenham’s move been hijacked, but the deal for Spurs to land the ex-Middlesbrough man is now completely off according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein. But Spurs are said to have come within an inch of a deal.

Indeed, transfer expert Jones says sources have told him that a deal was basically done – and Traore had agreed all terms on a contract at Tottenham until June 2026. Now, he is set for a return to the club where it all began.

“If Spurs fail to sign Traore at this stage then you have to wonder how it’s been allowed to happen. From what I’m told, it had gone as far as agreeing all the terms on a deal until 2026,” Jones told GMS on Traore.

Jones on Traore: How have Tottenham left this happen?

It is a real mess. Traore has been on Tottenham’s radar for a few windows now, while Fabio Paratici even wanted him at Juventus. Spurs need additions this month if they are to stand any chance of a top-four finish.

A left-sided defender, right-back, central midfielder and a striker are all areas that require strengthening at Spurs. Traore was seen as a player that could come in as a right wing-back. But Spurs have let one slip through.

They have done the same with Porto star Luis Diaz, though it is difficult to understand why Spurs wanted the Colombian – given there are other areas that are more pressing. Tottenham must move quickly, or be left behind.
