A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.
West Brom boss Tony Pulis has told the Daily Mirror why he wants the transfer window to be slammed shut.
Spurs have just had an offer for Baggies forward Saido Berahino rejected, with Pulis wanting the window to close to give his side the chance to move forward.
He’s described the period as an ‘unsettling’ one and it’s unclear at the moment whether Tottenham will make a second offer for the player.
“It is an unsettling period and as I have said before the window should close earlier and then everybody should concentrate on the football,” he said.
The Daily Express has reported that Tottenham may have to pay £20 million or more to make sure they get their man.
Tottenham’s opening offer for Berahino, according to the paper, was worth around the £15 million mark.
Tottenham have the resources to be able to afford such a transfer, but whether Daniel Levy commissions another move remains to be seen.
Former Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado has been quoted by ESPN explaining that he wants to revitalise his career.
The Spaniard struggled to produce anything close to his best form during his time in North London, which eventually saw Spurs sell him at a loss.
However, he feels he can have a big impact for new club Villarreal, having returned to Spain.
“I had two very bad years [at Spurs] and lost my confidence. Valencia was the best time of my career, I played my best there, now I am coming to Villarreal with the idea of doing even better,” he said.
