I’ve personally been writing about Spurs – on and off – for the last twenty years now and can never remember a period where actual news has outstripped idle transfer speculation.
In the last week, we’ve had the confirmation of AVB as the new boss, together with confirmed signings of both Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen. There’s also been the new deal for Steven Caulker and even the suggestion that AVB has told David Bentley he has a clean slate is news rather than rumour – assuming it’s true of course.
Even this morning, the confirmed stories keep coming with the reports that Luis Martins has been installed as our first team coach.
As a result, Spurs fans are checking the sites to see who’s coming next and could we see a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor signed and sealed in the next few days?
According to a source, Spurs are close to a permanent transfer for the Togolese and the fee could be as little as £5m. In addition however, Tottenham will pay Ade a further £5m in order to supplement those Man City wages of £170,000 a week that we simply can’t afford.
“It didn’t look very likely at the end of the season but we’ve found a solution that satisfies City, Spurs and the player,” the source said. “Spurs are the only team to have held talks over the transfer and City are desperate to get rid of him.”
As always – ‘watch this space’ is the advice but with the rate that news is coming in at the moment, we may not have to wait too long.
