According to reports emerging this morning, Spurs and Hull City have agreed terms for the transfer of Jake Livermore and the deal should be announced very shortly. The midfielder impressed while on loan with Steve Bruce’s side last season but with his path back into the Tottenham side currently blocked, it’s claimed that a deal is imminent.
Reports vary in terms of the fee, which is quoted between £6m and £8m depending on which website you read but it’s generally accepted that Jake is about to undergo a medical which will confirm the deal.
The two clubs were busy negotiating with each other last summer with Bruce tying up the Livermore loan along with the permanent transfer of Tom Huddlestone so it’s logical that further links will appear. One of those reports claims that City will make an approach for Michael Dawson after losing out on Joleon Lescott.
Earlier this month, our club captain expressed his desire to bring up ten years at White Hart Lane but does he deserve another season at the club or should Spurs be looking to do even more business with Steve Bruce and his Hull City side?
Its a decent return on Livermore and we have an abundance of central midfielders, so a good deal. Dawson has been loyalband professional throughout his time at spurs. Hes a typical dogged english defender, but has sadly lost some pace. Maybe it is time he moved on? Hebwould be a good squad rotation player, but hes worth more than that I think… Harry may come in and sign him. Coys
Time for him to move on. I have recently expressed in one of my blog posts that the defence is something that Spurs really need to focus on and invest money into. Last seasons defensive performance just was not good enough. Onto the point, I think Dawson is getting a bit too old and like gav said, has lost some pace. So I do think that it is time for Dwason to move on.
Up until the man city game we had one of if not the best defence in th league. So to me its a question of confidence not ability we lack i agree that we do need some fresh ‘blood’ in that position i think Dawson can do a job for us when called upon ie cup comps and Europa league. And because he is such a professional would except such a role within the team. Loyal players are few and far between nowadays the money they get for him will not be worth the agent fees involved.
agree with Mark – we can’t sell all our homegrown players they should be the backbone of the team.
