Ryan Nelsen's agent Lyle Yorks confirms that the defender will be joining Spurs.

The agent of Ryan Nelsen has confirmed that the defender will be leaving Blackburn Rovers for Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs made a late move for the New Zealand international after it was confirmed that Sebastien Bassong would be joining Wolves on loan.

Nelsen's contract with Rovers had been cancelled, which made him a free agent and able to sign for Harry Redknapp's side. The deal has now been confirmed by the 34-year-old's agent Lyle Yorks.

"We settled with Blackburn and have reached agreement with Spurs," Yorks told the Washington Post

"It all unfolded quickly. Harry Redknapp has always been a big fan of Ryan. When the opportunity came up, it really played itself out today.

"We're just awaiting clearance. It's for six months, with a one-year option."

Nelsen joined Blackburn in 2005 from American side DC United.
