Or knowing Spurs, probably neither: However, there is increasing speculation that defensive cover will be brought in at the Lane this month and there are two players currently dominating the reports.
Christopher Samba is no stranger to these rumours and at the start of the season he hinted at a possible move, suggesting that he’d had enough of playing his football at the wrong end of the table. A departure for the 27 year old could condemn Rovers to relegation but it’s thought that Venky’s are keen to get the defender’s £60,000 a week off the wage bill.
The James Tomkins rumour seemed to start yesterday and while it’s not unknown for Spurs to plunder West Ham for their best players, there hasn’t really been anyone of any real interest for a while now.
Tomkins is just 22 but a big future is predicted. If he were to arrive at the Lane however, it’s unclear as to whether he can walk straight into the first team in the way that Samba would expect.
£8m is the fee being touted around for both players and if Harry aims for just one, who should it be.
