Report: Tottenham outcast Lennon waiting to decide future, Everton and Stoke interested

Aaron Lennon

Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is ready to play a waiting game over his future.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is prepared to wait until deadline day in August to decide his future.

Lennon, 28, found first team opportunities under Mauricio Pochettino hard to come by at Spurs this season, and chose to leave the club in the winter transfer window, joining Premier League rivals Everton on loan until the end of the campaign.

With two goals in 14 appearances for the Toffees, the speedy right winger went some way to resurrecting his career under Roberto Martinez, but is now set to return to Tottenham after his loan deal at Goodison Park came to an end.

The Daily Mirror report that, despite his fine form for Everton, Lennon has no future at White Hart Lane under Pochettino, and is free to leave the club this summer.

However, the report also suggests that Lennon is ready to wait until the very end of the summer transfer window before deciding his future, with two clubs interested in signing him permanently.

One of them is of course Everton, whilst the other is Stoke City - but Lennon would prefer to join Everton having enjoyed his time under Martinez.

The big stumbling block though is Tottenham's asking price. Spurs are allegedly demanding £8m for the former England international and not a penny less - though Lennon knows that by waiting, Spurs may drop that asking price as they could lose Lennon for nothing in a year's time when his contract runs out at White Hart Lane.
