Tottenham transfer news: Vadillo targeted and Dempsey's agent comments on his future

Clint Dempsey 2

The latest Tottenham Hotspur related transfer news.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for Spanish winger Alvaro Vadillo, by The Mirror.

Manchester United and Arsenal have both previously been suggested as destinations for the talented 19-year-old.

Vadillo is likely to be a part of Spain's under-19 squad which will defend their trophy in Lithuania later this month, having helped them qualify in early June. 

His involvement could delay any transfer, but the Mirror claim technical director Franco Baldini is ready to make a 'firm move.'

Vadillo, a left-winger, made 23 appearances for Betis in 2012/13, making four assists, but failed to contribute any goals.

The paper also link the club with a move for Icelandic striker Joel Pohjanpalo, an 18-year-old striker who has previously held talks with Liverpool. However with Monaco also interested the club may want to act fast.

Clint Dempsey had been linked with a move to West Brom by a number of reports over the weekend, but his agent has denied this is the case.

Lyle Yorks, his representative, told American site SBI,: "I have been in constant contact with Tottenham and they are happy with Clint and he’s happy with the club,

"He’s reporting back shortly. He’ll be back there and will be in Hong Kong (for pre-season) and everything’s good. Things could change obviously if a team came in with a big offer, but they are not actively trying to move Dempsey.

"There have been no meetings and no discussions. Not with Tottenham or with any other teams about Clint, his focus right now is returning to the team and helping them qualify for Champions League.”

The Mail yesterday claimed David Moyes has the backing of Manchester United to push for a deal for Gareth Bale, but given Spurs' reluctance to sell at any price, especially to a rival.

That can be knocked on the head by actually reading the report unlike other sites which have read the headline and ran with it, featuring an interview with new United chief executive Edward Woodward, who makes no mention of Bale in his comments, simply stating the club could afford a high profile target if the circumstances were right.
