Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir is at the centre of a tug-of-war between two Premier League clubs; Sheffield United and Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir is certainly a man in demand with Tottenham Hotspur joining Sheffield United in attempting to lure the young shot-stopper to the Premier League, according to Turkish Football.
In their heart of hearts, Sheffield United will know that the prospect of Dean Henderson staying at Bramall Lane and establishing himself as a bonafide club legend look slim. Parent club Manchester United have big plans for one of Europe’s finest young glovesmen, particularly when you consider David de Gea’s relative fall from grace over the last 12 months.
According to Fotospor, The Blades are set to put their faith in 21-year-old Bayindir if, or when, Henderson leaves – though they are not the only Premier League club who have been alerted to the rapid rise of a £12.5 million-rated youngster.
Tottenham are interested too.
Although, while Bayindir would likely become Sheffield United’s new number one in the post-Henderson era, the presence of Hugo Lloris between the sticks in North London means he would likely have to bide his time under Jose Mourinho.
Tottenham’s interest is linked to Damien Comolli, the club’s one-time director of football who resigned from a similar role at Fenerbahce last month.
