Tottenham are reportedly closing in on the double signature of Rangers' Alan Hutton and Middlesbrough's Jonathan Woodgate for £16.25million.

Spurs have been chasing Hutton throughout the January transfer window and have already seen two moves for the Scotland international fail, despite agreeing a fee with Rangers.

However, Hutton has thought to have had a change of heart and was in London on Sunday night to finalise the £9million move.

The 23-year-old will reportedly land £1million by moving now instead of the summer and pen a £33,000-a-week contract at White Hart Lane.

Spurs boss Juande Ramos was keen to land right-back Hutton with Pascal Chimbonda tipped to join Newcastle before the close of the transfer window.

Woodgate, who is understood to have passed a medical at the club, is expected to sign a lucrative £60,000-a-week contract with Spurs on Monday after rejecting the chance to re-join former club Newcastle over the weekend.
