Tottenham Hotspur latest: Including Belhanda and Fryers debut

Younes Belhanda

News, views and speculation relating to Tottenham over the past 24 hours.

Montpellier playmaker Younes Belhanda has emerged as a strong target for Tottenham over the past 24 hours. The playmaker was a key part of the Ligue One winning side last season and even scored against rivals Arsenal in the Champions League this campaign. Montpellier, who are no longer in European competition, want £12 million for his signature, and have accepted a bid from Fenerbahce however the player is said to favour a move to London and Tottenham are ready to bid now his availability has been confirmed.

Amid that potential good news, Wesley Sneijder may not be heading for Spurs after all. It has been confirmed the player is in negotiations with Turkish side Galatasaray over a move. As recently as yesterday Tottenham had been the bookies favourites to sign the player.

The FA have given their backing to defender Steven Caulker who they argue was most unfairly charged by UEFA after the under-21 fracas against Serbia last year. The FA are appealing the charge in an attempt to get it rescinded.

A developmental Spurs squad beat a Charlton side 4-0 - with Zeki Fryers making his first appearance in a Spurs shirt since signing, beginning a move which led to Tottenham's opening goal. Jon Obika scored twice, along with Jake Livermore and Andros Townsend. You can read the full report here.
