Tottenham have confirmed that a deal has been agreed to bring in Sandro from Internacional this summer.
The Brazilian club's president Vitorio Piffero revealed last week that an agreement was close after lengthy negotiations between the two parties.
Internacional then announced on their official website on Tuesday morning that everything was in place for the midfielder to join Spurs.
Tottenham have also confirmed the move, subject to Sandro passing a medical, and manager Harry Redknapp is excited about the prospect of having the player on board for next season.
"It would be fantastic," said Redknapp. "The chairman has been dealing with it. I got a phone call this morning from the chairman saying that he thought we were close to doing it.
"Hopefully it will get done now and it will be a good signing.
"He is an outstanding young player. He is on the verge of the Brazilian team.
"He has already played for Brazil and captained the Under-18s, 19s and 21s.
"He is strong. He looks a very, very good player so I am looking forward to getting him here."
Sandro will remain at Inter until the end of the Copa Libertadores, which finishes in August.
Spurs have been chasing Sandro, who has been capped once by Brazil, since last summer and also came close to signing him in the January transfer window.
