Jose Mourinho admitted he “waits for news” while Gedson Fernandes prepares to undergo his medical treatment in Tottenham.

When asked about the signing and further matters in the transfer window, the manager gave little away.
Gedson Fernandes is preparing for medical treatment in Tottenham and Jose Mourinho is waiting for news
He said: “I am waiting for news. News can come or not. I am more worried about Middlesbrough than about the market.
“Even if you get a player, you can’t play him in a repeat. So at the moment I am not interested in Gedson or any other player. “
When Fernandes completes his deal, the club gets the chance to make the deal permanent. He recently hardly played for Benfica amid reports of a fall-out with manager Bruno Lage.
But the loss of the Portuguese party may be Tottenham’s win, although he is not eligible to play in Tuesday’s FA Cup replay against Middlesbrough.
