A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly one of two London based clubs interested in a move for Adnan Januzaj of Manchester United.

United are thought to be open to the idea of letting the Belgian winger head out on loan to gain more playing time.

Tottenham will have to pay half of his current £50,000 per week wage deal according to reports this morning.

Mauricio Pochettino believes today is a good opportunity for Tottenham to show off to football fans outside England.

Tradition sees Premier League games played on Boxing Days, while other leagues break over the Christmas and New Year period.

“This is a good opportunity to show a good performance, not only in Argentina but the rest of the world, because everyone is focusing on England now,” said the boss.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has piled the praise onto Spurs striker Harry Kane.

Kane is likely to lead the Tottenham attack for the game against the Foxes this afternoon.

“Of course, he’s a couple of years older now, with more experience and as a very likeable and level headed young man, as he was then, he’s proved to be an outstanding talent,” said Pearson.
