One name that keeps appearing in the rumour mills is that of Ryan Shawcross and over the weekend, Stoke’s centre half has been firmly linked with a move to Tottenham. Some stories also suggest that Spurs will offer Sebastian Bassong to Tony Pulis as part of the deal.
Shawcross was on the books at Manchester United before making his way to the Potteries via Belgium. He is obviously known for his physical presence which has been somewhat overblown following the Aaron Ramsey incident, but his style of play is well suited to Stoke and he has also converted a few of their set pieces to help with the goal tally.
The centre-back has been called into the England squad and it’s thought that he may seek a transfer to help restart his England career, but would it be a good move for Tottenham?
