After a note on a Spurs website that responded to a ITK comment, Sky Sources ‘broke’ this afternoon with the claim that Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen would be staying at White Hart Lane and that a new deal, similar to the one signed by Hugo LLoris may even be signed in the next few days.

The Belgian defender enjoyed a positive World Cup for his country and those performances led in part to reports of a move to Barcelona. The Sky story followed on from another update suggesting that Jan was going nowhere.

So with Lloris and Vertonghen both likely to commit their futures to the club, media attention has turned elsewhere with the claim that Spurs are set to cut their losses and take a hit of up to £11m on a sale of Roberto Soldado.

The link here is to Inter Milan who have struggled in Serie A and would be looking for a new striker as part of their rebuilding plans. Parts of the story just might add up but would Daniel Levy really accept £15m for a player who cost £26m just 12 months ago?

  1. The media likes making up stories about Spurs, linking their players with every Tom, Dick and Harry throughout Europe and has increased ever since key players were sold namely Berbatov, Modric and Bale which has given them the ammunition to do so but interestingly, all we’re sold for massive profits. Can any of you ever see Daniel Levy letting a player he bought only last year go at an £11m loss? If you do, you must be eating magic mushrooms which has taken over your brain. I suspect that this story originated from Italy. Mushrooms are used regularly in their diet which is perhaps why they more than most, write a load of bollocks on a daily basis and that’s on a good day for them.

  2. Soldardo will score goals with the right service which he did not get in the games he played last season.

    Would be more concerned if dawson bae rose and naughton start any games next season all need to be shipped out.

  3. Spurs only paid £18m and the rest of the large fee was performance related add ons which he obviously failed to achieve. And depreciation on a striker of that age would be at least £3m a year so Levy would in effect loose nothing on the balance sheet- this could happen. The real question is should it happen?

  4. Come on u Spurs.Im 45±faithful supporter! Url r the pros,make a good side & play ur opponents hardball. U players r paid & dont b laxydaisy & fearful. Hav a positive gameplan ailround. Goodluck.
