Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder ‘expects’ Djed Spence to join Tottenham

Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder has admitted that Djed Spence ‘obviously’ doesn’t want to return to the club amid interest from Tottenham, and he ultimately expects Spurs to land the 21-year-old.

The wing-back spent the 2021/22 season on loan at Boro’s Championship rivals Nottingham Forest and played a huge role as they earned promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

Spence’s performances didn’t go unnoticed and 90min understands Tottenham are confident that they will win the race for his signature.

While Boro boss Wilder remained tight-lipped regarding negotiations, he did reveal that Spence’s future is almost certainly away from Teesside.

“If nothing happens with Djed, then he’s our player and he’ll be back for pre-season,” Wilder told the Northern Echo. “From my point of view, negotiations between Kieran [Scott, head of football], Neil [Bausor, chief executive], Steve [Gibson, chairman and owner] and Tottenham stay between Kieran, Neil, Steve and Tottenham.
