Birmingham agree fee for Clemence Jr

LONDON: Birmingham City have agreed a fee with Tottenham Hotspur for midfielder Stephen Clemence, the English Premier League clubs announced on Tuesday. 

The 24-year-old son of former Liverpool, Tottenham and England goalkeeper Ray, will complete the move subject to a medical and the settling of personal terms. 

“We have accepted an undisclosed offer from Birmingham City and Stephen will travel to Birmingham tomorrow for talks,” Tottenham director of football David Pleat told the club’s website. 

It is the second deal arranged by Birmingham on Tuesday, following their bid for Jamie Clapham, which was accepted by First Division Ipswich Town. 

Last week, the midlands club signed former French international striker Christophe Dugarry for the rest of the season. 

Clemence, a former England Under-21 international, has made only one appearance for Spurs this season, in the League Cup, following an Achilles injury. His contract expires at the end of the season. 

The left-footer joined the club as a trainee in 1994, making 84 appearances in all. 

His most successful season was 2000/2001 when he played 35 times, impressing with his accurate passing. – Reuters
