Tottenham round-up: Levy on transfers, no way back for Adebayor

Daniel Levy

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

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has told the club's fans to expect more signings this summer, the London Evening Standard reports.

Spurs have so far signed Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld, and the Standard says that reinforcements in central midfield and out wide are expected.

Levy is quoted as saying: “The window will be reasonably busy. We have already brought in four new players since the winter window and we’ve done deals for players who have now left."

The report also says that Vlad Chiriches, Roberto Soldado and Younes Kaboul are all expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer. 

The Daily Mail reports that Emmanuel Adebayor has no chance of forcing his way back into the side as Spurs are keen to get him off the wage bill.

But it is those £100,000 a week wages that are proving to be a stumbling block as they are struggling to find a buyer, even though former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood would like to sign him for Aston Villa.

This is also despite Adebayor saying he plans to see out the remaining year of his contract at Tottenham.

Finally, Tottenham's latest signing, Toby Alderweireld, has said he can understand that Southampton fans will be angry with him after snubbing the club he spent last season on loan at in favour of a move to White Hart Lane. 

The Belgian is quoted in the London Evening Standard as saying: "I understand that there is some disappointment. I have sent a text message to Ronald and thanked him for a great year. He gave me a lot of confidence and made me a better footballer.

"I gave 100 per cent for Southampton and wish everyone luck for next season."
