Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora is heading for Sevilla after the two clubs agreed a fee for the midfielder.

Ivory Coast international Zokora has been a long-term target for the Spanish side, but the two clubs were unable to settle on a sum for his services.

With an accord now reached, the 28-year is heading for the White Hart Lane exit after three years in North London.

A statement on Spurs' official website read: "We have reached agreement for the transfer of Didier Zokora to Sevilla.

"The Ivory Coast international joined us from St Etienne in July 2006 and went on to make 134 appearances for the club, including being part of the League Cup-winning side of 2008.

"We thank Didier for his contribution and wish him every success for the future."

Sevilla announced on their website that Zokora has signed a four-year contract.

Zokora said: "I am delighted to join an ambitious club and am looking forward to the Champions League.

"It is a great day for me. I have joined a very good team."
