The tedium of international week has led to a fresh batch of transfer rumours and the latest one to involve Tottenham concerns a 21 year old midfielder currently playing for Feyenoord.

Jordi Clasie has a surname that could be a sub editor’s dream in England and he certainly has enjoyed an impressive, albeit short, career. At 21 he already has two full international caps and his performances in Rotterdam seem to have caught the attention of a number of clubs across Europe.

The rumour is that Spurs are one of those clubs and with a reported fee of £5 million, Clasie looks to offer good value but is there really any need for another defensive midfielder at White Hart Lane?




  1. He is not a defensive mid though. He plays the role of a deep-lying playmaker. If you consider Clasie a d-mid then you also consider Xabi Alonso, Modric’, Nuri Sahin, and Pirlo d-mids. He is a player who will develop in the mold of these players if he is good enough. He is small and not extremely athletic but quick, decisive, and smart with the ball. Possesses good vision but his lack of physicality is worrying. I think a possible modric’ replacement for 3-5mil is good business but higher than that I think the bet is too risky.

  2. of course mike…
    but who on earth told u that they heading to white hart lane??
    Plus there is a challenge from bigger clubs for all these players…
    you got to understand that We are not a big club yet…
