Andros Townsend

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Andros Townsend has told the Daily Telegraph he hopes Jermain Defoe wasn’t recently spying on the club.

Defoe recently spent time training with the Spurs first team, before his move to Premier League side Sunderland.

“I only hope he wasn’t spying on us and that the manager hadn’t left any of his notes lying around!” said Townsend.

Tottenham and Sunderland meet in the Premier League this weekend.

The Daily Mail has reported that former Tottenham Hotspur star David Ginola is set to enter the race for the FIFA presidency.

Ginola is being tipped by the paper’s report to announce his decision at a press conference today.

He’ll become the third person to stand against current president Sepp Blatter, along with Jerome Champagne and Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein.

TalkSPORT claims Italian side Roma are still interested in a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Emmanuel Adebayor.

Their report suggests Roma are leading the race to sign the attacking star as they look to tie down a striker on loan until the end of the current season.
