Fulham midfielder Mousa Dembele is on the verge of joining Tottenham after the west London club revealed they have accepted a bid for the Belgium international.

Dembele was missing from Fulham's squad for their 1-0 League Cup second round defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday and the Cottagers confirmed after the match that the 25-year-old was having a medical with Tottenham.

With around £33 million ($52 million) to spend from this week's sale of Luka Modric to Real Madrid, Dembele, who joined Fulham from AZ Alkmaar in 2010, is seen by Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas as the ideal replacement for the Croatia midfielder.

"Martin confirmed post match that the club has accepted a bid for Mousa Dembele From Tottenham Hotspur, the player is currently undergoing a medical," a statement on the club's website read.
