Tottenham are understood to be continuing to broker a deal for Brazilian midfielder Sandro.
Spurs first made a move for the 20-year-old, who made his senior Brazil debut earlier this year, in the summer.
They were unable to finalise a switch, but Harry Redknapp confirmed his admiration of the player and that he wanted to seal a swoop for him.
Sandro himself has been quiet on the reported move, with speculation suggesting a transfer could be concluded shortly for him to switch to White Hart Lane in January.
The player's Brazilian agent Luiz Paulo Chignall now admits that a deal is close, although it is believed the details of the transfer are complicated as his club Internacional do not own 100 per cent of the player.
But Spurs, who also agreed a co-operation deal with Internacional earlier in the year, are believed to be confident of sealing a move.
"This deal is very advanced although Internacional are yet to receive some important documents," said Chignall.
Sandro insists he is yet to hear about whether the proposed move is set to go through or not.
"I don't know anything. If there would be something true about my transfer I suppose that somebody would have told me something about it," he told Radio Gaucha.
"But maybe there is something true about me being transferred but they are respecting my personal moment and that's why I haven't been told anything."
