It is difficult to isolate the ‘original source article’ for this particular transfer rumour, but given that is is complete nonsense, one may as well cite YahooSport who at least haven’t bothered to credit anyone.

£55m rated midfielder Tanguy Ndombele was mumbled about – briefly – in last summer’s window, but of course like every other supposed link, nothing vaguely panned out.

Indeed, whilst it wasn’t in the interest of the mainstream football press to shout it from street corners, but virtually all of Tottenham’s prospective deals were complete fantasy.

Toby Alderweirled was rendered unsellable at the money Spurs were asking, and so Manchester United were completely out the picture weeks if not months BEFORE that rumour was doing the rounds on an almost weekly basis.

Danny Rose was another example, if ever there was a case of a man talking himself out of potential move…

Harry Hotspur understands from sources close to the club that there have yet to be any discussions – even preliminary ones  – about prospective January window targets.

Indeed, the atmosphere on that front within Spurs is best described as, ‘professional’.

Tottenham have more immediate issues before them; namely the retention of existing personnel.

There will be more on this as it inevitably unfolds.

In the interim, if anyone tries to sell you big tales of big transfer strategies for the new year – I would suggest you simply politely smile sympathetically at them.

    Now that the first ever Unexplained Wealth Order has been issued and executed in the UK, forcing the recipient to reveal sources of funding for inexplicable purchases then how long will it be before we can expect the first Unexplained Executive Negligence order? And what other orders/charges can we look forward to or might we want to see?

    Unexplained inaction during a football league transfer window order perhaps or perhaps the more serious charge of ‘Being Daniel in charge of a Football club’.

    Do feel free to chip in..

      Ok so no-one else is awake so here’s a few more

      Unexplained Dream Trampling order.

      A Charge of failing to disclose the contents or whereabouts of Duffle Bags.

      Unexplained Expectation Tampering Order.

      A Charge of failing children in pursuit of happiness.

        Abramovich of Chelsea should be the first name on the TWO football list.

        Not to mention the unexplained firing of a gun while in your hand or feeling bloated after eating too much junk food. Courts will investigate & what will be will be

          If you ever respond paul. For a country ( right or wrong) leaving the EU for control of your sovereignty. Why aren’t assets part of it? Dont you want to know who’s buying the building next store? Why is that a bad idea? Just wondering.

    Ironic thing is even current staff contracts aren’t being looked at either

    • Harry Hotspur October 11, 2018 at 7:47 am

      Everything’s been abandoned

    When Jan does arrive we will all be older but no more wiser. Like a curtain with a farmer

  • Exile October 10, 2018 at 9:38 pm

    I think by the time January comes the only realistic target will be the Fa cup. Added to that as Daniel has often noted January offers poor value so best keep our powder dry.
    At the same time several members of our current playing staff namely the good ones will be ‘reviewing the situation’

    Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack?

    Is this lad any good? is he worth touching anyway? I have only seen him in the odd French game and that is such a poor league.

    The vile subhuman goes from strength to strength.

    September is the month your readers tradditionally bail due to the close of the transfer window.

    ❤️ it.
