Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks expects to get a work permit on Tuesday before completing a loan to Sampdoria.
Winks, 26, has fallen out of favor with Tottenham and was one of the players Antonio Conte had to train out of the first-team squad as he tried to find an exit for some unwanted stars.
Both clubs have agreed a deal for the 26-year-old, but the move was postponed today due to the public holiday, which prevented Winks’ visa from processing.

If there are no last minute hiccups with the work permit, Winks’ medical examinations will take place in Italy tomorrow evening or Wednesday.
Winks came through Tottenham academy and as such supporters will be disappointed to see him leave, but Conte has ruled the midfielder is no longer in his first-team plans.
The 26-year-old made just nine Premier League starts last season and was banned from the squad later this year because the club wanted to sell him.
Winks is keeping his options open this summer but Sampdoria has shown the greatest interest in the midfielder and with just two days left until the transfer window, the Spurs star has given the green light to an intriguing move to Italy.

The midfielder, who played 10 times for his country, joins Sampdoria during a difficult period for the club.
The Italian side, who are 18th in Serie A, have not scored in any of their three opening games and were hammered 4-0 by a Salernitana side that survived last season at the skin of their teeth.
The Spurs academy graduate will revive his Tottenham career at the club under manager Marco Giampaolo.
