The frustrating Tottenham career of Giovani do Santos could finally be coming to an end in this transfer window with reports of interest from Spain and from Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle. Gio hinted at his potential again this month, albeit against Cheltenham, and after the game manager Harry Redknapp hailed his talent while giving an insight into why the player has barely featured at the Lane.
“He’s got talent but has to work harder in training and get fitter,” Harry said.
“When he does that he has a chance. He has had a real opportunity to play here if he’s at it, but there are lots of good players here.”
Fortunately it seems Owen Coyle didn’t read those comments but suggestions are that the Trotters Boss is only interested in a loan deal for the Mexican whereas Spurs will settle for nothing less than a permanent transfer.
Elsewhere, Villareal and Sevilla are also linked but there are conflicting reports as to what Spurs demands are. Some suggest that the club is holding out for £8m while others claim that we will sell to the highest bidder, providing that his initial fee of £4.7m is recouped.
Either way it looks like the end of the Tottenham High Road for the talented but exasperating Giovanni dos Santos.
