Tottenham latest: Levy said to want striker return with Sherwood not so sure

Some of the latest transfer news and more surrounding Tottenham Hotspur on this Monday evening.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is interested in bringing Dimitar Berbatov back to White Hart Lane for around £1.5million according to the Daily Telegraph.

However, Tim Sherwood has said the club does not need to sign any more strikers in this transfer window; with Jermain Defoe leaving the club at the end of February – Spurs are left with Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane as their natural strikers.

Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal has told Sky Sports he was approached to become the new Spurs boss after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, but hinted at a move to the Premier League after the World Cup in the summer.

Van Gaal said: ‘I want to work in the Premier League because that is the league I have not worked in yet.

‘I have refused [the Tottenham job] but maybe there will come another chance. That is the difficulty with coaching. When you are free, then maybe there no vacancies.’

Emmanuel Adebayor is quoted on the club’s website talking about the importance of yesterday’s 3-1 win against Swansea City, which takes Spurs level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.

Adebayor said: ‘It wasn’t easy. The start of the game was a little slow, but when we get going, when we get our momentum right, we’re a tough team to play against. We showed that at Swansea.

‘We played good football. We had so many chances and took three. The most important thing was to take the three points and we did that.’

Hugo Lloris told the Tottenham website that it would have been nice to get a clean sheet to go alongside the good performance.

He said: 'We waited and when we got the ball, we started to play and we did it well. To win in Swansea is never easy, so it’s a good win for the team.

'Maybe we dropped a little as well and conceded a goal, that was disappointing because we wanted to keep a clean sheet, important for the goal difference. Still, it’s a great three points.'
