Transfer Market / Rumor Mill Update

August 6, 2009

Just wanted to touch on the latest Spurs transfer market news / rumors doing rounds:

  • Looks like young French defender Bassong is undergoing a medical at Tottenham this morning and is expected to be announced later on today if all goes well. 8 million pounds is the agreed upon fee with Newcastle.
  • Striker Jan Klass Huntelaar is to sign with AC Milan later this evening from Real Madrid based on reports out of Italy. He’s supposedly already on a plane.
  • Real Madrid’s young striker Alvaro Negrado’s agent has openly spoken about Roma’s interest in the 23 year old. I still believe he is one of Harry Redknapp’s targets but always thought we had a slim chance of signing him. Possibly a loan deal?
  • Blackburn Rover’s manager, Sam Allardyce, has stated that there has been no contact made between Spurs and his club for Congolese central defender Christopher Samba. It’s possible one of our insiders leaked this to bring the overinflated price down on Bassong.
  • 19 year old Moussa Sissoko from Toulouse is being mentioned as a target. The press have stated that Spurs submitted a bid for 12 million pounds which has been rejected. Apparently they are expecting a minimum of 15 million. I read somewhere that 30 mil was the value… that’s just stupid!
  • Miguel Veloso – never heard anything again regarding that!
  • Joe Cole – Chelsea said no way!

If I am forgetting anything else, please feel free to comment. SPURS!!!!!!!!!!!!
