Tottenham WHL

A round up of transfer stories about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are once again being linked with a move for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott.

Reports started circulating last week that Spurs were one of the sides looking to sign the out of favour centre back on loan over the second half of the season.

The Telegraph has reported that Lescott has been told he can leave the club and that Tottenham are still interested.

Reports continue to link Paris Saint-Germain with an unlikely deal for right-back Kyle Walker.

Laurent Blanc is apparently keen to secure a long term option on the right side of his defence according to reports in France.

However, the British press commonly agrees that Tottenham are not willing to do a permanent deal this month, so soon after Walker agreed a new contract with the club.

Erik Lamela’s father and agent has ruled out the possibility of his son leaving Tottenham this month.

Lamela had been linked with a return to Serie A but his father, Jose, has confirmed Tottenham aren’t willing to let him go.

“He would go back to Italy, but he won’t be leaving Tottenham in January,” said Jose Lamela.
