The transfer rumour mill has gone into overdrive and there are some fascinating stories concerning suggested arrivals and departures at White Hart Lane today, but perhaps the main interest centres on two players who may leave the club in the summer.

When a short-list of players was drawn up as likely candidates for a move away last month, the names of Aaron Lennon and Rafael van der Vaart were nowhere to be seen. However as things have progressed, the stories surrounding these two are gathering more momentum.

Lennon’s much publicised withdrawal from the Real Madrid game has allegedly been followed by a series of ‘bust ups’ between player and manager. Liverpool were briefly linked with the player some weeks ago and it is rumoured that they will come back in with the possibility of offering Joe Cole as the ‘make-weight’. Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Lennon.

Elsewhere, VDV arrived in August and quickly became a fans favourite, but his presence always seems to cause a selection problem and he’s even been blamed for the lack of goals from our out-and-out strikers. It seemed only a matter of time therefore before the rumours started in earnest and now they’ve arrived. Most articles also cite ‘lack of mobility’ as one of Rafa’s problems but if he does leave, there should be a considerable queue for his services.
