It would seem that these are Étienne Capoue's last few hours as a Tottenham Hotspur player as Napoli close in on a deal for him.
Napoli have been linked with the French international for some time and the two clubs have been progressing gradually in talks.
Although Capoue only arrived at White Hart Lane last summer, he has failed to settle in the Premier League and isn't a crucial figure in Tim Sherwood's plans.
For Napoli it is important to galvanise the squad after an impressive start to the season fizzled out somewhat largely due to a lack of strength in depth.
It is reported that Napoli director Riccardo Bigon is boarding a flight to London later today and will meet with Spurs officials to finalise the terms of the transfer.
The player's agent Mino Raiola has given the provisional green light but the fee is still being discussed, although the two clubs are believed to be thinking along the same lines.
