Tottenham are preparing a move for Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse, according to The Telegraph.

Ward-Prowse, who scored eight goals and added seven assists in an ever-present Premier League campaign for the Saints last season, has been wanted by Aston Villa all summer, although the two parties haven’t yet been able to agree a fee after seeing a £25m bid rejected.

And the Telegraph believe that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have joined the race for the 26-year-old, who’s made almost 300 appearances in the Premier League for Southampton, but narrowly missed out on Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Santo has already added three players to his squad, and whilst bringing in another centre-back and a striker remain top of his priority list, the potential departures of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko mean another midfielder could be needed.

The report believes that the set-piece specialist was wanted by Mauricio Pochettino when he was Spurs manager having made him a regular during their time together with Saints.



  1. This for me would be our best signing without a doubt ,the guy is a class player and has premier league experience, get rid of ndombele he’s not a premier league player and never will be ,he’s too lazy not man enough and doesn’t want to be there anyway

    • So you running with a “journalist or blogger” one time tweet. Why hasn’t he followed up with any more meaning full story since then. Managers are paid to managed and he is going to run into problems with Levy. Dnombele will be playing as Nuno will realized no more mids are coming in and unless he move Gio to holding we do not have anyone but Winks and good luck with that. Likewise. If Gio moves who is going to create in the final third?

  2. Forget it Spurs need quality defenders, Ward Prowse is a good player though. Please sort out that leaky defence that conceded too many goals and problem solved COYS

  3. Spurs should get Ward Prowess in place of Harry Winks
    BUT Spurs really need new one strike and one central defenders to stop further leak in coming new season

  4. Spurs should be pulling their wallets out and sooner the better. Forget Martinez if you want HK to stay get Vlaovic
    Spend on the Defence by getting a straight 20m for Tomayishu with Sanchez as part of the deal. Then Ward Prowse for 35m deal with Harry Winks as part of deal.
    Then get Coady from Wolves with Aurier as make weight plus10m
