With several players still linked with Spurs as we head towards the last 24 hours of this transfer window, it looks like being a far busier day for Tottenham than it was 12 months ago.
Meanwhile, there is much hope that some of the deadwood will be off the books and the first to leave could be Wilson Palacios with news of an £8m deal to Stoke expected very shortly. It’s thought that the Potters were also looking to take Peter Crouch but Spurs have resisted any move.
Elsewhere, Wigan are the latest club to be linked with Gio Dos Santos as the Mexican, who hasn’t featured at all in pre-season or since the campaign began, is desperate to move before tomorrow night.
There may also be some definite news on Alan Hutton who has been linked with a move to Aston Villa for some time. It was suggested this morning that Alex McLeish was only looking to take the right back on loan – a situation that wouldn’t have suited Spurs. However, latest reports indicate that Villa are prepared to part with £3m after losing former Spur Luke Young to QPR.
News of arrivals will hopefully follow, but it’s equally important to finalise the departure of some of these players before this window closes.
