Fabrizio Romano has taken to social media to reveal that no injury concerns that were discovered after the latest round of scans on Antonio Nusa.
There were a lot of twists and turns in the Nusa transfer saga last month, with reports at one time suggesting that Tottenham had wrapped up a €30m (£25.7m) deal with Club Brugge for the 18-year-old (The Athletic).
However, Brentford then appeared to swoop in to steal the player from under Spurs’ noses, only for the winger to astonishingly fail a medical at the Gtech Community Stadium in the final days of the window.
It was widely reported that the Bees had discovered some knee and back issues during the medical examinations, which is why they had called off the transfer (Ben Jacobs).
Over the last couple of days, some outlets have suggested that Spurs could make another attempt to sign the Norway international next summer, with Newcastle United also alleged to be watching the player’s situation (Het Nieuwsblad).
No medical issues found with Antonio Nusa
There has now seemingly been another twist in the saga, with Romano taking to social media to reveal that no knee or back problems were discovered after a Norwegian medical team conducted a full check on Nusa.
The journalist says this confirms Club Brugge’s previous stance that the winger is indeed 100 per cent feet, with the finding perhaps raising more questions about Brentford’s conclusions about the player.

It is perhaps in the interest of the player and Club Brugge to downplay any long-term injury issues in order to protect the winger’s market value.
However, cynics will wonder if Brentford simply changed their mind about the 18-year-old after agreeing to pay a significant fee to Brugge and thus used the medical issues as an excuse to get out of the deal.
