A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.
The holding player has linked up with the Ligue One giants, signing a deal until 2020.
He struggled to get a chance and to show what he could do at White Hart Lane following a move from French club Montpellier.
The Metro has claimed that Tottenham are in talks to sign Josip Ilicic on a deal from Serie A side Fiorentina.
The paper claims that he would cost somewhere in the region of £5.5 million, which would represent good value for Spurs.
He’s a versatile player who can play up front as a striker or wider in more of a wing role.
The Daily Mail has reported that Aston Villa are now considering a loan move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
The paper claims that Daniel Levy has demanded a £5 million fee from any deal, but his wages are thought to be a stumbling block.
A loan deal could see Tottenham still paying a percentage of his wages but they should be able to work out a deal with Aston Villa.
