Southampton's Shane Long scores their first goal

Tottenham Hotspur supporters appear to have had a mixed reaction to the rumours that Southampton striker Shane Long could be set to join the club in the Daily Mirror.

Spurs have been linked with Long in recent weeks, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his striking ranks.

Long has scored 14 goals for Southampton this past season, and his form towards the end of the campaign was highly impressive.

The Republic of Ireland international has now reportedly emerged on Tottenham’s list of targets, as they look to help take the goalscoring burden off Harry Kane.

Kane is currently Tottenham’s only recognised out and out striker in their senior squad, and signing a new forward has become Pochettino’s priority this summer.

And if the Lilywhites do manage to get hold of Long it seems that the move won't go down too well with the White Hart Lane fan base.

Here is the best reaction to the rumours on social media site Twitter from Spurs fans.
