Tottenham are considering delaying their move for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, according to the London Evening Standard.

Spurs were expected to make a bid for Barkley before Thursday’s deadline, but the Standard is now claiming there is uncertainty about whether that will happen because of the midfielder’s latest injury.

Barkley is expected the miss the majority of the rest of the year with a hamstring injury, meaning there is a possibility he wouldn’t play for Tottenham until December even if he does arrive before Thursday.

Last month, Ronald Koeman claimed Barkley is almost certain to leave Goodison Park by the close of the summer transfer window. The 23-year-old has just 11 months left on his Everton contract.

Not long after those claims, Koeman backtracked a little, suggesting the midfielder could still play a part for the Toffees this season.

There is no word on whether Spurs would go back in for Barkley in January if he stays with Everton this summer. If not, he’ll be available on a free transfer next July.



  1. If Spurs want Barkley,I feel that it is better to finalise the deal now. If not, Chelsea or some other club will step in and buy him.The risk is that letting him go until his present contract expires will not ensure that we will get him next year or even in January, and it may invoke anti feelings from him towards us.

  2. we need players that can help us in all competions from the start and Barkley is not the only player in the world. Sometimes its good to have a little ice in the stomach.
