Tottenham Hotspur are close to completing a deal to sign South Africa international defender Bongani Khumalo when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The 23-year-old currently plays for Supersports, but has impressed while on trial at White Hart Lane, with a £1.5million deal now on the cards.
Spurs manager Harry Redknapp confirmed:"I think we've done a deal for him. We're in the process of doing a deal for him.
"He's not expensive. We had him over on trial and we like him. He's got potential and we've got a tie up with the club Supersports, so we've taken him on.
"It will be a great chance for the kid. He's a great lad. He comes from a poor background and he's desperate for a chance and we're going to give him a chance."
Khumalo was part of the hosts' squad at the World Cup finals earlier this year, starting all three of the Bafana Bafana's group games, scoring in the 2-1 victory over 1998 world champions France.
