The January transfer window has reached its half way point and so far there have been no new arrivals at White Hart Lane. Head Coach Tim Sherwood suggests that it will stay that way but that hasn’t stopped the press from coming up with two midfield links, one of which looks considerably less than likely.
Dutch international Wesley Sneijder was heavily linked with a move to Spurs prior to heading to Turkey and signing up with new club Galatasaray. The 29 year old will have been with his current employers for one year by the end of this transfer window but with reports that he’s seeking a move, the old Tottenham connection, amongst others, has re-appeared.
The second name seems to be a new one – 24 year old Swedish international Albin Ekdal who is currently with Cagliari in Italy. Previously a target for Chelsea, Ekdal is a versatile player who can feature on the wide right or he can slot inside in an attacking midfield position.
Spurs may need some cover in January but even if Sherwood does jettison players such as Lewis Holtby and Etienne Capoue, midfield is one area where we surely don’t need any more personnel?
