Capoue struggled to hold down a regular starting spot and is out of favour with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. He was linked with a move away in the January transfer window but potential reported deals fell through.

The midfielder made almost 200 first-team appearances for Toulouse after progressing through the youth ranks at the French club, and was nominated for Ligue 1's young player of the year award in 2013.

Capoue has featured seven times for his country since being handed a senior international debut in a friendly against Uruguay in August 2012. He has scored once for Les Bleus, in a 3-1 World Cup qualifying win over Belarus.

The promoted side have also been heavily linked with a move for another Frenchman from Spurs - Benjamin Stambouli - but so far there has been no update on apparent negotiations.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder joined the north London club from Montpellier last September.

With the UK's terror threat level at "severe" - meaning an attack is "highly likely" - Scotland Yard said it has made changes changes to policing plans for this year's tournament.

As well as extra patrol officers, including some in plain clothes, a "highly mobile" reserve unit is ready to respond to "emerging incidents", the force said.

It comes after at least 30 British holidaymakers were killed in the Tunisian beach attack on Friday, and as the UK prepares to mark the 10th anniversary of the July 7 bombings next week.

The tennis action on Centre Court kicks off today with defending champion Novak Djokovic's first round match, while 2013 champion Andy Murray will begin his challenge tomorrow.
