Tottenham midfielder Wilson Palacios is waiting to hear whether he will be able to seal a move to Napoli.

Palacios has been used sparingly at White Hart Lane this season after the emergence of Brazilian Sandro and could drop further down the pecking order if the club seal a summer move for West Ham's Scott Parker.

Now, the Honduras midfielder is hopeful that he will be allowed to move to Italy and play Champions League football next season.

"The next few days will be key for my future. There are advanced negotiations but I will await news from London," he told the Daily Mirror.

Palacios arrived at White Hart Lane from Wigan for £12 million in 2009 and, although reports suggest Napoli are willing to offer £7 million, Spurs are holding out for more.
