LONDON (AP) Tottenham is set to make its first signing of the summer after reaching an agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Colombia center back Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs said on Friday the deal is subject to a medical examination and securing a work permit.

Sanchez was Ajax's player of the year last season as the Dutch club reached the final of the Europa League.

Tottenham was the only English Premier League team yet to make a signing this summer. Last season's runner-up in the league sold right back Kyle Walker to Manchester City.
