Source Close To Club: Dele Alli’s Transfer Confusion Is Fake News
By Harry Hotspur -

Yesterday a leak came out via the Daily Mail’s Sami Mokbel that Dele Alli felt himself in a state of limbo at Tottenham, found surplus to requirement by coach José Mourinho, yet prevented from accepting a summer loan move to Paris Saint Germain.

Sami says that the reason Dele was prevented from being loaned has yet to be explained to him, but from a source close to the club, The Boy Hotspur understands that this is not the case. In fact, Dele Alli is all too aware of his situation at Spurs.

Since the arrival of Mourinho, Dele has struggled to survive the scrutiny of a coach that doesn’t mince his words. The opening gambit about are you Dele or Dele’s brother ought to have been enough to alert the 24-year-old that he needed to raise his game, both in training and during games. Alas, it wasn’t.

My understanding is that the loan move to PSG was rejected by the club on two points. One, that the French giants wouldn’t pay his full wage, and two that Daniel Levy felt that there was still a way back for the boy. José has always been of a mind that ANY player can come back, because it’s business, not a personal spat.

This leak to the Daily Mail has been viewed by the club as not being quite as bad as say a Danny Rose move, however it is definitely seen as being disingenuous. Dele is itching to quit Spurs in order to prove himself; however this another disaffected player seeking to point the finger at Mourinho, a manager that has never failed to win, wherever he’s been.

Expect Alli to be sold as soon as January, but do not expect him to move anywhere unless Tottenham get precisely the deal they seek.

He won’t be going anywhere soon then,because nobody will pay what Levy will value him at.

Of course he knows why he is not playing. If not for a couple of unfortunate scenarios occurring, the team that Mourinho is putting out would be 2 points clear at the top of the Prem. When he has played, e,g Thursday against Antwerp, he and others were hauled off at half time for thinking that strolling around posing would gain 3 points !!!!!!!!!!

With hard work & a willingness to listen & fight, he could get back the player he was for the first 3 seasons at THFC.
He needs to realise it’s NOT personal but José wants warriors, leaders, team players, 100% commitment, aggression, intelligent cnuts, strong/winning mentality, etc from EVERYONE.

How long before Dele dips into the Danny Rose playbook of How To Shoot Yourself In The Foot Whilst Said Foot Is In One’s Mouth?

This little effort was pretty **** weak just like his footballing effort. Either he doesn’t have a clue or his advisors are totally useless. He might be due to spend some time training with Danny and ask him for some pointers

Exactly H, the so-called transfer ‘story’ came from the ‘Daily Fail’, that renowned crucible of veracity and integrity … need one say more! Sami Mokbel is a tosser, like Paul Jiggins and various other habitual tabloid lowlife, who at one time or another have all lied through their teeth regarding Spurs. It’s frankly just a waste of time to even read articles by these people as most of it is made up. These are not real journalists, just semi-literate, prevaricating, fantasists.
