Toby Alderweireld

A round up of the latest transfer stories about Tottenham Hotspur.

TalkSport has suggested Tottenham may move for out of favour Atletico Madrid star Toby Alderweireld.

The 24-year-old Belgian has made just three starts in La Liga since he snubbed Premier League interest to move to Spain from Ajax.

Tottenham could move to do a deal before the end of next week with Alderweireld likely to want regular football ahead of the World Cup this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has vowed to sign more young and home grown British talent.

The Daily Mail has suggested that the Spurs head coach has told sporting director Franco Baldini he wants a British core to his squad.

Scott Parker and Zeki Fryers are the only British based signings the club have made since 2011.

Tottenham have reportedly set an €8 million asking price for midfielder Lewis Holtby.

Schalke are believed to still be interested in the German but would prefer a loan move over a permanent deal.

Holtby has been able to force his way into Tottenham’s first team plans under head coach Sherwood.
