It’s exactly one month until the transfer window opens across Europe and that’s why today has brought a whole host of rumours linking Spurs, amongst others, will players across the Premier League and beyond. Some of the names – Leandro Damiao included – are old and familiar but it’s hard to recall Spurs being linked with Newcastle’s Hatem Ben Arfa in the past.

The Magpies have endured a poor season after threatening the top four last year and it’s thought that some of the bigger stars will want away at the end of the campaign. Back in France however, local sports channel InfoSport + have gone a stage further by claiming that initial talks between Spurs and Newcastle are underway.

Ben Arfa is 26 now and his two years at St James’s Park have been affected by injury at times and in 53 appearances for the club, the winger has scored ten goals and assisted a further ten.

There is no suggestion of a transfer fee in this seemingly isolated report and while it’s unexpected, is Ben Arfa a player you would like to see at the Lane next season?



  1. Not going to happen, only a week or so ago he said he wanted to stay for the long term at Newcastle, personally think this is just a spin off from the Bale stories and the press just looking for someone to replace him.
    I’m going back to the land of zzzzzzzzzz until the press print some truth

  2. I’d be surprised if HBA left United. But if he does, I doubt it will be to go to Totts. He’ll want a club that plays regularly in the Champions League – and let’s face it – that’s not Totts.

  3. think he’s one of the best wingers in EPL, so of course I’d welcome him here. However, I doubt we’d be able to get him here, too expensive for us I fear…

  4. If spurs are I’m contacting him it will only be if they are tapping him up. He is still under contract and newcastle have not granted permission for discussion. This is just lazy journalism.

  5. fellow spurs supporters transfer window after transfer window spurs have offered every striker in europe and south america deals which never eventuate we have to face the fact mr levy will not spend the money most of us know this but we live in hope
