Tottenham latest, club still keen on Davies, considers alternative venues for home games

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Tottenham are determined to sign Swansea City left-back Ben Davies according to the Daily Mail, with the defender valued at £12 million by the Swans.

The report says the 21-year-old was due to arrive for talks at Spurs' training ground on Monday but Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins pulled the plug on the deal. La Liga Champions Atletico Madrid are also said to be interested in the defender.

Sky Sports have also reported interested in the defender and says that Swansea are reluctant to sell him as Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen their defence ahead of his first season in charge at White Hart Lane

Tottenham could end up playing home games at Brighton's Amex Stadium or Ipswich Town's Portman Road according to the London Evening Standard, before they move into their new stadium for the 2017/18 season.

The hierachy seem to be more of the opinion that they will be unable to play home games at White Hart Lane during the 2016/17 season because of all the building work that will be taking place.

Alternative venues for home games include Wembley Stadium according to the report, as well as StadiumMK and the Olympic Stadium.

Finally, defender Younes Kaboul has been singing the praises of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on the Tottenham website.

He said:“From day one, I knew he was a fantastic goalkeeper - a world-class goalkeeper - and I’m very happy to play alongside him at Spurs.

“He’s the captain of the national team and I’m very proud of him. I hope he will lead them a long way.”
