The Dutch playmaker has agreed to contractual terms with Totttenham Hotspur, paving the way for a January exit from Inter Milan. The two clubs must still agree on a transfer fee, but a deal could be imminent.
Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri broke the news on Twitter on Monday.

Sneijder, 28, has been frozen out of the Inter Milan team for much of the season because of a contract dispute. He has only appeared in eight games this campaign — the last one coming three months ago.
