Gareth Bale will fly to London from Spain on Friday before completing a move to Tottenham from Real Madrid.
Bale spent several hours at Madrid’s training ground on Thursday, where he is understood to have undergone part of his Spurs medical, as he closes on a deal that will see him return to the club he left in a world-record £86m transfer seven years ago.
The Wales captain is expected to be joined on a private flight to London by Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Reguilon, who is set to join Spurs on a permanent deal after completing a medical on Thursday.
Lawyers in Spain and England are working on drawing up contracts which will make Bale a Spurs player again on a season-long loan deal. Spurs have agreed to pay about £20m in wages and loan fees.
Negotiations are understood to have continued to progress well from Wednesday night into Thursday morning, and the deal is expected to be finalised before Bale heads for London.
The 31-year-old owns his own private jet, but Tottenham are expected to arrange transport for the duo.
Both Bale and Reguilon are likely to meet conditions that will enable them to avoid quarantining upon their arrival in London.
