Donald Tusk has said a deal is ready, but cautioned there are “certain doubts on the British side”.

The President of the European Council said that while yesterday evening he “was ready to bet that it’s all set and agreed, today there are certain doubts on the British side”.

“The basic foundations of an agreement are ready and theoretically tomorrow we could accept this deal with Great Britain,” he said.

It comes as Boris Johnson said he will write a letter to Brussels asking for a delay if no deal is approved by Saturday, the Brexit Secretary has appeared to confirm, on the final day of negotiations before the key EU leaders’ summit.
