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.

    God knows why as a so called fan you see fit to make up derogatory nick names for our players…calliing Walker bonzo – he is a fine player and you put him down. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou – no cluedo – or whatever you call him. He has not had many chances yet in his first season in the prem. How about Son – it took him a season – and look at him now. I bet you were putting him down and slagging him off last year as well. It is funny when we have never had it so good – all you can do is try to bring everything into the gutter by slagging off our players or our wonderful chairman. You will have nothing to complain about soon will will you? Maybe you should change to supporting the Arse – they have a lot of ‘non-fans’ as well

    No need to do much this summer ; we’ve only exceeded 70 points twice in 21 years and we are already 71 with 6 games to play. if system aint broke no need to fix it . by all means sell Sissoko , one of our greatest ever misfits . a genuine classy forward maybe but Jansen , like Lamela before him , deserves another chance . Lamela himself? very good player but dont ask me where he now fits in, glad I am not Poch

    do we need an unproven mid when there’s the likes of isco who would relish a move to join us, add another 10mill and we would have the finished article and would give the likes of eric a little bit more interested.

    HH, You are full of cr*p.

  • richspurs April 17, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    Ullo all. The only strengthening we needed was in the grey matter in the head. Whatever Pocho has done is wonderful. On recruitments. Where would Winky fit in then? Can we retread Trippier into a winger? Move Rose back up to wing? We do need another striker. That lack cost us points earlier in the season as we are now finding out.. Need to go find me Easter eggs, yummy. Oh, i also think we gonna catch those Ruskies, win league on goal difference.

  • Thehughtonslice April 17, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    Why all these suggestions to get shot of Wimmer? Not entirely sure what he has done wrong.

    A bank holiday just for my burfday, what more could I ask for, except for my friends missus to not reverse into my car again!

    • gloster1861 April 17, 2017 at 11:25 am

      Happy birthday matey! Should be announcing this on the new blog though…🎆

      • Caspurs♿️ April 17, 2017 at 11:26 am

        Cheers Glos, I fakin will!

  • Blanchflower April 17, 2017 at 11:18 am

    Please lets not do an assnil and spend great whaks on hot prospects. We have a core to challenge for the title. Lets spend on 1 or 2 proven premier players (Zaha or Barkley) and not a fleet of prospects. Oh, and two players who would be affordable and are mustard this season are two lads from Hull. Maguire and Robertson. Sell wimmer and davies (sorry lad).

  • Chris April 17, 2017 at 11:05 am

    Not that he’s coming anywhere near the PL from what the press say, but surely the Tielemans (spelling?) lad is a more natural replacement for Dembs???

  • yiddington bear April 17, 2017 at 10:48 am

    Celebrating finishing above your closest rivals is for losers.
    There is no trophy for it. No one else gives a shit. Only finishing top is worthy of a celebration.
    We are not the Woolwich. Our season doesn’t depend on finishing above them. That’s the mark of fans with a loser mentality. They are more pissed of that we’re going to finish above them (I said it) than they are not qualifying for the Champions League. Does that make sense to anyone ?
    All I’m getting from my Goon mates is congratulations for finally finishing above us. Fuck you. It means nothing if we don’t finish above Chavski.
    PS. I will take the piss a little though.😉

  • Harry Hotspur April 17, 2017 at 10:30 am

    Slight edit: Leeds are an interested party. He’s not on loan there.

  • Digiyid April 17, 2017 at 10:21 am

    Woods won’t cost a fortune but PL has a different pace and teams don’t hoof the ball 60 yds targeting the highest point up front. Janssen I think is getting used to the pace and his positioning and body movements in the box has improved lately. It is wise to get a younger player and nurture alongside Dembele allow him to learn from him. This guy seems a good choice but we still need that pacey right wing flyer and sell the likes of Wimmer Sissoko replacing them with better players.

  • East Stand April 17, 2017 at 8:54 am

    NoCluedo and Cards are both wide players, this boy looks like a central battler. Wouldn’t say no but we are fairly well covered in that position now.

    Dier moved back into midfield against the Cherries as we went to a back four, looked good again.

  • East Stand April 17, 2017 at 8:50 am

    RB Leipzig are the most disliked team in Germany apparently. They have bugger all support but are funded by a certain energy drink manufacturer. Bit weird the German league…

    • Aussie in Switzerland April 18, 2017 at 3:37 am

      I think Bayern is the most hated

  • PlayitagainSamways April 17, 2017 at 8:31 am

    Leeds have got quite a few players who wouldsuit Spurs.
    Kiwi striker Wood is a very similar player to Kane. Leeds have another player i would like and that is the defender Jansen.
    I got all this from watching 10 minutes of Newcastle v Leeds. That is expert opinion inthis day and age.

  • Stumbling along April 17, 2017 at 7:34 am

    If we sign anyone from championship it should be Knockaert think he is a super star in the making and wouldn’t cost the earth to bring him in

    • Digiyid April 17, 2017 at 10:23 am

      Go and get Barkley Zaha and another CH replacing Wimmer and we don’t need anyone else

      • DC Hotspur April 17, 2017 at 7:22 pm

        do we need an unproven mid when there’s the likes of isco who would relish a move to join us, add another 10mill and we would have the finished article and would give the likes of eric a little bit more interested.

        Replace Barkley/Zaha with Pulisic who can play both of those positions, has more potential than either, and will cost less than the combination. Then it’s a striker and center half for me.
