PSG : Club defender Aurier closes in on Tottenham move

He was handed a two-month "convertible" prison sentence, which he is unlikely to ever serve, and was fined over £2,000.

The report claimed that Spurs will pay PSG about £23 million (R387 million) for Aurier, who has apparently already completed a medical and agreed personal terms with the London side.

This conviction has previously prevented Aurier from playing in the UK.

The Ivory Coast global was forced to miss a Champions League game against Arsenal last term after he was denied permission to enter the country due to his conviction.

Aurier's reaction on social media would also appear to suggest a decision has gone his way.

BSE soars 258 points; Reliance, Adani, HDFC top gainers
Reliance Industries , Ultratech Cement , Ambuja Cements, HDFC and Yes Bank were the other major gainers in the index. However, the Nifty50 could not retain that level and closed at 9,884.40 points - up 88.35 points or 0.90 per cent.

However, according to Guardian journalist David Hytner, the French courts have today seen fit to downgrade Aurier's conviction to a fine, meaning that he's free and clear to submit a United Kingdom work permit.

Aurier wanted out of the Ligue 1 outfit since the arrival of Dani Alves who, along with Thomas Meunier, are set to make life hard for him on the left.

Coach Mauricio Pochettino sees Aurier as a replacement for Kyle Walker, who has left for Manchester City.

Aurier would become Tottenham's fourth recruit in the past week following a club-record deal for Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez, goalkeeper Paulo Gazzanigga from Southampton and Argentinian youngster Juan Foyth from Estudiantes earlier on Wednesday.
