Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes has chosen to join Tottenham ahead of West Ham United, according to Sky Sports.

On Friday, we relayed a report from the Guardian suggesting Spurs had been offered the chance to sign Fernandes on an 18-month loan despite West Ham having already agreed a deal in principle with Benfica.

And now it seems Tottenham have completed their hijacking of the deal. Sky Sports claims Fernandes will fly to the UK next week to finalise his move to north London. Deals were apparently agreed with both Spurs and West Ham, but the 21-year-old has chosen to join up with Jose Mourinho’s side.

The report goes on to say that Fernandes has fallen out with Benfica head coach Bruno Lage, which is partly why he is leaving the Portuguese club. Tottenham look to have taken advantage by striking a loan deal, but a permanent move currently looks unlikely because of his £102 million release clause.

Mourinho will be delighted to bring in a midfielder swiftly after Moussa Sissoko was ruled out until April with a knee injury. It will be interesting to see how quickly Gedson is integrated into the first-team if he does join.



  1. Coys so close today a rebuild needed with injuries and Erickson just running down his contract and having lackluster games ,needs gone

  2. Eriksen is a fucking cunt. How dare he give his shirt away and pose for pics after the game. Everything he ever did for this club has been erased over the last 18 months. He is a piece of shit that needs to be forgotten and god help whoever gets his scrawny, non commital, waste of space arse that he’s become. Any “fan” that disagrees doesn’t go to games. Its a lot different live than it is watching on the telly twitter/dodgy feed mouthpieces. Get that cunt out of my club

    • You’re spot on,he’s been a terrible
      for a couple of seasons now,
      It’s wound me up when these pundits keep saying how you have to play Eriksen even when he’s been crap
      for so long,so please just hurry up and f-off

  3. Erikson is just what you say he should go now what the fuck levey on with we need to get rid of all the dead wood now I would sooner see a team of committed players than a team of expensive wankers

    • I know the is dissopointed but He is very low in integreaty to be playing for this club anto be running his contract downsimple mean He is tying this club hand He zhould not not be playing or training in the club
      There is another one Rose should not be playing He has stated public He will not renew His contract these players should be allow to use the club to tain theother one is Ventogen they are useless to the club they only using the lub so they move to another club

  4. I think that no matter what your opinion of him, and in some cases there is certainly no doubt, he should have been sold on a couple of seasons ago, before it got to this sorry state. Wanting to go is one thing though, being picked and then playing shit because you don’t care is a fucking disgrace.

  5. Eriksen is doing a Modric only he’s not as good a player. Definitely a serious re-build season though there were good signs yesterday with Japhet.

  6. Get rid Erickson doesn’t want to play for us anymore do a straight swap for bale atleast he will try bring back bale for that deadwood

  7. Time for La Celso, Tanganga , Parrott to get more experience. Get N, Dombele fit. Get Piatek in. Eriksen is the past, as is Aurier , even Foyth. New keeper , new right back all out for FA cup. Board must invest, yeh right. Or sell up to some1 who wants success

  8. Simple. You play the players that want to play not the hasbeens. We didn’t have too loose that game yesterday. Why be scarred of them? Teams like us just make them look better than they are.

  9. Need to buy a striker cavani would be nice need to rotate more kane plays to much i liked the way he set up when Mourinho first come delis falling short again get rid of Erickson and get both Fernandes

  10. Why do we need to buy another centre forward what is wrong with troy parrot
    Keep saying he is too young but George best was only 17 when he played for man u
