Tottenham agree deal on Routledge

Crystal Palace and Spurs have agreed an undisclosed compensation package allowing winger Wayne Routledge to move to White Hart Lane in July.

The out-of-contract winger is believed to have agreed terms with Spurs, but the move had been delayed with Palace reportedly wanting 3m in compensation.

Spurs have had two previous bids for the 20-year-old Routledge turned down, including one of about 2m in January.

Because of his age the Palace winger is not available on a free transfer.

Routledge played in four of England's five games at the recent under-21 tournament in Toulon, scoring in the victory over Tunisia.

Earlier this week Spurs agreed a deal to sign Leeds midfielder Aaron Lennon, subject to a medical and agreeing terms.

He made his debut aged just 16 as a substitute against West Brom in the League Cup in 2001 and scored within a minute of his first league start, against Wolves in 2002.
