Glenn Hoddle suggests a January transfer target for Tottenham

Jamie Vardy

Glenn Hoddle says that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur in January.

Glenn Hoddle has suggested on Unibet.co.uk that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

The Tottenham legend believes that the North London outfit need to recruit a striker in order to support Harry Kane for the second half of the season.

“I think they need to bring in another striker in January though, perhaps one who could play right up top allowing Harry Kane to drop a little deeper,” Hoddle has written on Unibet.co.uk.

“I think Kane could actually get more goals that way. Clinton N’Jie isn’t really that player, and neither is Heung-Min Son, but the one who would fit like a glove for me would be Vardy.

“He can press, he works hard, and a partnership with Kane would be great news for England going into the Euros.

“It would also be a real signal of intent from the Spurs board to go out and bring in the man on fire during a season when they could win the league. Sadly I don’t see it happening though.”

Vardy has been on the books of Leicester since 2012 and is an important player in Claudio Ranieri’s team.

The England international striker has been superb for the Foxes so far this season and has been scoring goals regularly.

The former Fleetwood Town striker has scored 14 goals and created 19 chances in 15 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

Vardy has a pass accuracy of 66% and a shot accuracy of 60%, and has won 45 headers, 14 dribbles and 16 tackles.

Leicester are level on points with leaders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table at the moment, while Tottenham are just outside the Champions League places.
