Tottenham Hotspur latest: Including Bale fear and transfer funds

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale's old foe Charlie Adam will go head to head with the winger on international duty this Friday.

The former Liverpool midfielder caused a huge row this summer when he injured the Welshman this summer in a pre-season match, the second time he had done so. The Scotsman has already told the media the 'importance of stopping Bale', words which will no doubt bring fear to Spurs supporters, who will simply want their star player back at his club in one piece.

Bale has been voted the Welsh fans player of the year, a consolation for missing out on the top prize at a Welsh Football Association do last night. Liverpool midfielder beat him to win the official Welsh Player of the Year award, preventing the winger from extending his reign to three years; he won in in 2010 and 2011.

The Tottenham website examine Aaron Lennon's amazing record for the club. Spurs are now unbeaten in the last 26 games in which the winger has scored, with the latest being the club's 2-0 win over Villa on Sunday.

Today on HITC Sport we take a look at Scott Parker, asking if he will be able to force his way back into the Tottenham side when he returns from injury, but equally how lucky Tottenham are to have such great competition in midfield.

Reported transfer target Isco says he is not paying any attention to speculation linking him with a January switch to Tottenham. The Malaga attacker and Spain under-21 international has said he is fully focused on his current club, who have made an impressive start to their Champions League campaign.

Yesterday Spurs were linked with a different winger, Dries Mertens, and it certainly seems as though they could have some money to spend come January. The Evening Standard is reporting that the club are preparing to abandon the thrifty spending of the last two transfer windows, and are being linked with a move for Shakhtar attacker Willian. 

The paper claim AVB has been promised funds, with Ajax star Christian Eriksen another potential name on the club's shopping list.
