Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Bentaleb makes vow despite new contract delay

Bentaleb, Fazio

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

Goal.com has quoted Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb as being tired over his contract situation at the club.

The midfielder is thought to have been locked in talks with Spurs over a new deal for an extended period, with an agreement yet to be reached.

However, the middle man has stated that he won’t stop working hard even though talks have become long and strenuous.

“We’ve been negotiating for nearly nine months now - I’m getting a little bit tired of it - But I still work hard. It doesn’t change how hard I work,” he said.

The London Evening Standard has reported that Tottenham have recorded the highest ever pre-tax profit in the history of the Premier League.

Tottenham were one of the few clubs to improve their debt to funds ratio under the guidance of chairman Daniel Levy.

Among the sources listed as generating revenue, the paper suggests that cash from TV broadcasting rights was crucial in the process.

The Daily Mail has reported that newly promoted Watford are interested in doing a deal for Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli.

Stambouli has been linked with an exit by the paper as Mauricio Pochettino looks at ways he can revitalise his midfield.

The paper does not suggest a fee for any deal, but it’s likely that Tottenham would look to make a profit on what they paid to sign him from Montpellier; around £4 million.
