We’re doing a Leeds.
EDIT: We’ve been talking to a Leeds target.
Word from Gladys is that Spurs were granted permission to speak with Naby Keita and his agents and that personal terms have been agreed.
Is a deal actually done?
This is where it gets dull or interesting dependent upon your outlook on life.
The tough tackling 22 year old midfielder plays for RB Leipzig, where he’s made 26 appearances and score 8 goals.
Glad was quick to add is that Spurs haven’t been alone in talking to this Guinea born lad. Liverpool and Leeds are also known to have been interested.
Keita could be an interesting acquisition. He’s noted for his through balls, dribbling and no nonsense approach. Cost? All the prices these days are somewhat diluted by the fact that Hire Purchase is the order of the day and so nobody costs ‘X’ as in one lump sum.
Tottenham would probably have to find around €20million to secure his services, I guess it all rests upon how heavy the whoring gets.
Dele Allí has ‘the wave’, Keita has ‘the forehead slap’…
HH VERDICT: Sight unseen, I think the lad looks good. Certainly a million times better than No’Cluedo and the twit Clinton Cards.
