Since the Michael Dawson rumours surfaced, Spurs have been linked with a number of central defenders but the latest story seems one of the more unlikely. Everton’s John Heitinga has been mentioned but the rumour looks to have been denied almost as quickly as it surfaced.
The 28 year old Dutch international was left out of the squad to face Manchester United on Monday amidst reports that he was carrying a knock. It might be easy to suggest therefore that someone has merely taken this news, thrown in the Dawson story and linked everything together to make a spurious rumour.
The player himself has since taken to Twitter –
‘As far as I know all these Tottenham rumours are not true. As I said before I stay at Goodison.’ He announced.
We’ve been wrong before but this doesn’t seem to have any substance and fans of Michael Dawson would suggest that this is a pretty pointless switch in any case.
