Gareth Bale

All the latest Tottenham Hotspur news and gossip.

Tottenham are one of six clubs who SkySports claim are in the hunt for Manchester City youngster Abdisalam Ibrahim who is currently on loan in Norway with Stromgodset. The 22-year-old is thought to be available this summer for transfer as he is entering the final year of his contract and if they pursue their interest, Spurs could pick up a bargain in the Somalian-born Norwegian.

Gareth Bale has scooped the Football Writers Player of the Year Award, and becomes only the third player to win the gong along with both PFA Awards in one season, following in the footsteps of... Cristiano Ronaldo.

Andre Villas-Boas, speaking after Bale's win, has said the Welshman is not for sale this summer regardless of whether Tottenham finish in the top four or not. AVB added he would be 'extremely surprised' if the winger was to leave.

With Blackpool's Tom Ince touted in recent days for a move to Spurs, we have taken a look tactically at whether the winger is a better fit for Andre Villas-Boas system that Aaron Lennon, and if he could usurp him from the starting line-up.

Spurs face competition for striker Heung-Min Son, report the Evening Standard, because Borussia Dortmund are eyeing him as a potential replacement for the outgoing Robert Lewandowski. It is ominous news because as a result of their cash from player sales, Dortmund may well be able to outbid Spurs as well as offering the South Korean a chance to continue in the Bundesliga, and at this stage negotiators are able to pledge confirmed Champions League Football.

In further transfer news, left-back Fabio Coentrao, previously linked with Spurs from Real Madrid, has emerged as a target for Juventus according to the Express.

And finally, for something different, the Tottenham Journal has an interesting take on a day in the life of Spurs groundman Darren Baldwin.
