Stories today have suggested that Spurs are monitoring the progress of one Mikel San Jose at Athletic Bilbao. The 22 year old has impressed in Spain this season after heading permanently back to his homeland in 2010. Prior to that he played at Liverpool for three seasons without breaking into the first team.

The story seems to end before it starts however with the player having this to say about his future.

“I know there are rumours about clubs in Italy and England and this pleases me – but it is hearsay. In Bilbao I am fine and I absolutely intend to stay at the club. My head is only here.”

At 22 with one bad experience in England behind him it seems unlikely that San Jose will leave this summer but he could be one for the future.

    • They will now. They have started to put in sale clauses in all the contracts. Llorente, Munian, Martinez and Susetta(excuse the spelling) all being heavily linked with moves. Money talks no matter how proud they are of their Basque roots.

  1. I’d be happy with just Lorente please. Can you imagine how many he would have scored for us this season? we wouldn’t be worrying about 3 rd or 4 th if we had a good striker this season.

  2. i want defensive strong mode to team hane champions league strong cb vertoghen ,san jose , strong cdm diarra ,keita or any hazard, hoilet,falcao or rossi ,remy ,green

  3. just watched footage of verts he looks like the real deal we need him and 3 other centre backs just like him in that age group as well so there long term. could do with a good left back and right back as well as 2 goelies friedels to old now and the others are crap same goes for our centre backs as well. could do with a right winger as well for back up for lennon some one calpapble not falque as has been proven by him going on lone. as for strikers just get a couple on loan again as they cost so much in wages and transfer fees. we need to stenghthen more in other areas, if they turn out to be high goel scorers then look at signing them. our weekest position in the team is the defence its been a problem for years, we need to have strenth in depth at the back not just relying on one ie king or gallas to carry the others who our injury prone and to old. there has always been an ethos at spurs of just playing attacking football and not worrying about defence, because we can just score more goals than the oposition. it doesnt work against the big teams because they just punish you on the break. if we want to have a serious chance of winning the league thats what needs to be done. please please please other than a right winger no more midfielders we have loads sort the back line out harry.

  4. Sign vertonghen and hugo lloris and our defence will be awesome!! Kaboul vertonghen caulker and dawson, naughton and rose covering for walker and BAE. Then we need Llorente and Ganso and we finish 3rd
