Luka Modric signs for Tottenham

Tottenham have won the race to sign highly-rated Croatian midfielder Luka Modric for a fee believed to be £15.8 million.

Spurs have agreed personal terms with the 22-year-old, who was reportedly courted by many of Europe's top sides, and he will leave Dinamo Zagreb for White Hart Lane this summer subject to passing a medical.

Modric must also obtain a work permit but that will be a formality given his status as one of the continent's most coveted talents.

After making his name in the Bosnian league as a teenager, Modric moved to Croatian club Inter Zapresic before joining Dinamo in 2005.

He made his debut for Croatia a year later and has gone on to win more than 20 caps for Slaven Bilic's side, including the home and away victories over England that cost them their place at Euro 2008.

His silky, two-footed passing caught the eye in both the England clashes and reports linked him with possible transfers to the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and, most recently, Newcastle.
