Tottenham media round-up, youngster on marking Falcao, links with Austin

WH Lane

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Under-21 defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has been speaking about the encounter he had with Manchester United's Radamel Falcao in the under-21's 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last night.

Carter-Vickers spoke about the difficulty of facing the Colombian who earned a terrific goalscoring reputation prior to his arrival in the Premier League with Porto and Atletico Madrid, as well as reflecting on the game as a whole.

He told the Tottenham website: “His movement is really good as well, especially in the box. He always tries to play right on the shoulder, making darting runs for crosses or pulling away for cut backs.

“We’re a little disappointed because we all felt we could have created more chances and there were spells in the game when we had them pinned back and we would have liked to have scored again."

Falcao could feature against Tottenham on Sunday when the two senior sides meet but the London Evening Standard reports that United are likely to be without Ashley Young after he picked up a knock in the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup - which adds to their woes given that Angel Di Maria is suspended for the game.

The London Evening Standard has reported that Tottenham, along with two other Premier League clubs, are looking at making a bid for Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin in the summer, and their director of football Les Ferdinand has admitted he could leave Loftus Road.

He said: "We will be trying our best come the end of the season to make sure Charlie signs up and stays.

"But you know what we do understand is that players are ambitious. Sometimes they want to look elsewhere."
