Manager confirms Tottenham transfer target will leave the club this summer

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham linked defender Lloyd Kelly is going to leave Bournemouth this summer. 

This has been confirmed by Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola after their 2-1 defeat against Chelsea earlier today.

After the game, in an interview with BBC Radio Solent Sport, Iraola confirmed that the player has played his final game for the Cherries.

The player has been linked with a move away since quite some time, with several clubs interested in securing his services, including Tottenham and Newcastle.

Spurs’ pursuit of Kelly dates back to last summer when they reportedly made a £20 million bid for the talented centre-back, an offer that was rebuffed by Bournemouth.

However, despite the reported interest from the North London club, recent reports have claimed that the player has agreed to a move to Newcastle instead.

Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna reported last week that Newcastle United are set to secure the signing of the English centre-back as a free agent, with a verbal agreement reached between the parties.

Given his extensive Premier League experience, Tottenham would surely feel disappointed to lose out on signing him for free.

Moreover, his versatility to also play as a left-back could have been highly beneficial for Spurs, especially considering their lack of a suitable backup for Destiny Udogie in that position.

However, no official confirmation regarding his move to Newcastle has been made as yet.
