Many areas of the press are linking Spurs with a January bid for Derby’s teenage sensation Will Hughes this morning. The player isn’t 18 until April but is already considered as one of the best players outside of the Premiership – but is he really good enough to command a £10m transfer fee?

Hughes made his debut for Derby in 2011 and in 227 league appearances for the East Midlands club, has scored twice. A measure of his promise came last month when Hughes won his first cap at under 21 level – coming on as a substitute for England in the friendly with Northern Ireland.

Andre Villas-Boas continues to claim that Spurs will not be active in the window but a move for a young player might be in prospect in the same way that we developed Aaron Lennon and Tom Huddlestone’s career.

The only thing that may not add up is the fee – £10m although that is believed to consist of £6m plus add-ons. As good as Hughes may be can he really justify that price at just 17?

    • …sooo, you think AVB is MASSIVELY lying when he says no additions in January…? Firstly Kane is ALREADY on loan…. Secondly Sigurdsson on loan would achieve what exactly…?

  2. levy needs to sign a attacking midfileder or second striker dempsey sigurdsson are not good enough for this spurs team the last 2 time we failed to get a good player in january we missed out on champions leaguse get your hands in your pocket levy you spent nothing anymore only what you sell

    • Firstly: isn’t that the ideal scenario? To spend what you sell? Sounds perfect to me. Buy Modric for 16m. Get 4-5 seasons of good use. Sell for twice the price, and sign 2-3 players in his place. I cannot see the downside. Especially during this financial slowdown, you do not want to be spending more than you earn. Secondly: Attacking midfieder? We just signed Dempsey & Sigurdsson. We must lay in that bed. They need time to succeed or fail. May I remind you that Dempsey was signed less than four months ago? Mid-season. Even Chelsea stick with Torres. We need a striker, nothing else really.

      • am sorry>>>but what tottenham really need is a creative mid fielder…defoe can score as he prove over and over..we av dempsey bale ade to help wit scoring…what we dont av is som1 to create more chance for them to score…dembele might be one of our better buy and i think he is really good….but no matter wat u might think he is not a creative mid fielder…we need that link from back to front…….we need that person who can unlock tight defense line like stoke’s….
