Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Fulham midfielder Sean Davis, according to a report in the Sun this morning.

The tabloid suggests that Spurs will pay around £3m to secure the services of the 24 year-old midfielder, who has represented Fulham in all four divisions. Davis had been thought to close to agreeing a new contract to staying at Fulham after being successfully reintegrated into the first-team squad by Chris Coleman having requested a move away last summer when Fulham rebuffed £5m offers from Everton and Tottenham amongst others.

A summer switch to Goodison Park fell through on account of a knee injury and Davis returned to the first-team at Charlton in November 2003 after opening discussions with the club over a new deal. He went on to make 30 appearances – scoring sixth goals – as the Whites finished ninth in the Premier League.

The former England under-21 international has made 198 appearances for Fulham, scoring twenty times, and won the First Division title and the Intertoto Cup with the west London club.
