AVB keen to resolve Modric saga

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas insists the Luka Modric transfer saga will not disrupt preparations for his first match in charge of Tottenham this weekend.

Real Madrid are closing in on the signature of Modric after Villas-Boas revealed that talks with the Spanish champions regarding a deal for the playmaker are progressing well. Villas-Boas, however, played down reports that Modric is undergoing a medical in Spain.

Villas-Boas hopes the player's exit will be finalised soon to leave him to be able to concentrate on his Tottenham bow at Newcastle on Saturday. "No, this is not a distraction," Villas-Boas told a press conference. "We set out a plan for the player and we have stuck to it. The player is training individually and he doesn't disrupt our environment."
