Tottenham have agreed a deal to sign midfielder Bobby Convey from American outfit DC United.

The 20-year-old impressed Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle during friendlies between the clubs in October and May.

And he has now agreed personal terms with the Premiership team.

The USA international will officially become a Spurs player if his application for a work permit is successful.

"I'm glad to have spent the last four years with this club, playing before the best fans in Major League Soccer," Convey told DC United's website on Wednesday.

"Moving to Tottenham is the next step in my career, and I'm ready to prove that American soccer players can develop to the point we can compete at the highest levels of our game."

An international at the age of 17 when he came on as a substitute against Mexico in 2000, Convey has been capped a further 17 times, scoring one goal.

Convey was 16 when he joined D.C. United and became the youngest player in MLS history to score at the age of 17 years, 10 months and 11 days.

In moving to Spurs, Convey will join U.S. team mate Kasey Keller.

The youngster is the second MLS player in as many months to join a top English club after goalkeeper Tim Howard moved to Manchester United from New York/New Jersey MetroStars.
