TOTTENHAM have reportedly agreed to sign Manor Solomon on a free transfer.
The Israeli winger was on loan at Fulham from Shakhtar Donetsk last season.
Tottenham are set to sign ex-Fulham loanee Manor Solomon on a free transfer
Solomon, 23, scored four goals in 19 league games under Marco Silva.
And Fabrizio Romano claims he is now set for an immediate Premier League return with Fulham’s London rivals Spurs.
New boss Ange Postecoglou has already made four signings since his arrival from Celtic.
Dejan Kulusevksi and Pedro Porro have had their loan deals made permanent.
While tasty fees have been paid for goalie Guglielmo Vicario and playmaker James Maddison.
Solomon still has a year remaining on his Shakhtar contract.
But with Ukraine under invasion by Russia, Solomon is able to use a Fifa rule to earn a move elsewhere.
Annex 7 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players allows foreigners in either country to unilaterally suspend their contracts.
It means Solomon can effectively join Spurs for free now, with his links to Shakhtar ending entirely next summer.
But the Ukrainians have threatened to sue, with chief executive Sergei Palkin telling ESPN: “I contacted Solomon and his agent and invited him back to our club.
“I said ‘you can play all the games in Champions League, you will be in the starting eleven’ but he doesn’t want to move and I believe he will stay in England.
“Finally, where he will go, I don’t know. In any case, if you go to Tottenham, we will deal with Tottenham in court in this case. Everything comes to a simple situation: it sounds like unjust enrichment.
“Can you imagine, we pay big money for this player and finally Tottenham receives him for free? It is not fair in respect of our club. We will definitely go to court and we will fight for ourselves.
“I would like to send a message to those clubs who are trying to sign our players without paying a transfer fee: Shakhtar will file claims for unjust enrichment against players or clubs who have enriched themselves and benefitted by obtaining a financial advantage.
“We believe these clubs who enrich themselves at Shakhtar’s expense will be obliged to pay restitutions. Those clubs should understand what they do when they decide to sign our players.”
