Tottenham Hotspur are moving closer and closer to finalizing the transfer of Dele Alli. The 18-year-old is now taking his medical with the club and it will be official as soon as he passes it, according to Sky Sports News.

It doesn't look like it's going to be a busy day for Spurs. If there is action, it will be with players going on, with Alli being the only one coming in, barring a surprise late buy.

Alli is an excellent young player who is a regular for MK Dons in League One and a key player for the England U-19s. He has been praised by observers, whether he's been playing for his club or country.

As part of the deal, Alli will go back to MK Dons on loan for the remainder of the season. When he does join Spurs, he will join a stocked and talented young midfield that already has Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason, giving the club a very bright future in the center of the park.
