The one piece of confirmed news from yesterday’s transfer deadline tells us that Spurs failed in a late bid to sign Charlie Adam from Blackpool.
While many Spurs fans were praying for the arrival of a world class striker, the club made a last ditch attempt to sign the Blackpool captain, who has been the subject of transfer rumours all month. It seems this time, they left it too late.
“We pushed on and tried to do it. Daniel was confident he could get it through. It went to the wire but we missed out by minutes,” said Harry Redknapp.
“Apparently the boy was definitely up for coming, but apparently the chairman couldn’t get hold of two shareholders who had to sign the forms as well. It’s just one of those things.”
A central midfielder, Adam was coveted by Liverpool amongst others. Clearly he’s a capable player but where would he possibly have slotted in at Spurs?
