Tottenham have been 'forced to re-adjust their transfer plans' - Could this be bad news for QPR in more ways than one?
QPR are close to signing Yann M'Vila from QPR, but the deal is not quite done yet. The transfer of Loic Remy is complete, with the striker unveiled on the club's official website.
M'Vila is one of French football's hottest properties, and will have been under consideration of several manager this window, but Harry Redknapp spoke yesterday that he hopes he convinced the midfielder to sign by selling QPR as a 'stepping stone' to a bigger club.
It is reported by CityAM that Fulham are in fact considering enraging their rivals by making a play for the midfielder, but we just wonder if Tottenham will weigh in with a late offer too.
Spurs are well-stocked with top class defensive midfielders, but an unexpected development has caused them to 're-evaluate' their transfer plans according to reports.
This is because midfield star Sandro went down with a knee injury against QPR at the weekend, and has undergone surgery on it.
Early reports, which claim Sandro is out for the rest of the season, the worst fear, it is terrible news for Spurs. He has been one of their best players this season and the injury could seriously derail their Champions League push. Already Jake Livermore's move to QPR has been cancelled as a result.
The silver lining is the return of Scott Parker from injury, but what if he breaks down again? With Yann M'Vila - A player Tottenham have been linked with regularly over the past six months - available for just £6 million, he would be a shrewd investment.
They will have to move super-quick, QPR hope to tie up the deal by the weekend. But if it isn't too late, don't rule it out just yet, as QPR showed with their gazumping of Newcastle's deal for Loic Remy, it's not done until it's done.
Should Spurs go for M'Vila as insurance for Sandro? Is it too late?
