It is understood though that Sporting want to keep Porro until at least after Saturday, when they play Porto in the Taca da Liga final – Portugal’s equivalent of the League Cup.

There remains a confidence the transfer will eventually go through but the delay is no doubt frustrating Spurs fans.

Tottenham signed winger Arnaut Danjuma on loan on Wednesday after pinching him from Everton in the 11th hour.

Danjuma netted six goals in 11 appearances in Europe while also scoring a further 10 goals in 23 LaLiga matches for Villarreal.

Elsewhere, Domoredosport understands a potential loan move for Djed Spence is being delayed due to the club’s refusal to include an option-to-buy in a deal.

A host of clubs, including Leicester, Brentford, Crystal Palace and Ligue 1 side Lyon are all keen on a short-term deal this month.

However, with the club not entertaining any permanent buy offers, negotiations are dragging.

Prior to their victory over Fulham on Monday, which came courtesy of Manchester United-linked ace Harry Kane, Spurs had won just one of their five Premier League games since the World Cup.

But victory over the Cottagers allowed Antonio Conte’s side to close the gap to the top four to just three points.
