Spence’s loan from Spurs has been approved, but they demand a seven-figure loan charge and payment of his salaries.
In an effort to advance the transaction on Tuesday, Leeds is prepared to make Spence a loan offer.
After reaching an agreement earlier in the transfer window for Joe Rodon, they have already acquired one defender this summer on loan from Tottenham.
As a result of a large exodus of the team’s key players, manager Daniel Farke is seeking significant reinforcements in the closing days before the deadline.
While Brenden Aaronson, Jack Harrison, Robin Koch, Rasmus Kristensen, and Marc Roca have taken use of loan release provisions in their contracts to join other clubs for the season, Tyler Adams and Rodrigo have completed permanent moves.
Leeds is attempting to fill a number of openings, including both full-back positions.
Spence is significantly lower on Tottenham’s priority list and hasn’t been selected for any of their three Premier League games this year.
Since joining Spurs from Middlesbrough in the summer of 2022 for an original fee of £12.5 million, which increased to £20 million with add-ons, the defender has only made six professional appearances.
The star, who was born in London, spent the second half of the previous season on loan at French team Rennes.
