Sources: Spurs Are Keen To Sell Star Despite Reports To Contrary
By Harry Hotspur -

David Hytner for The Guardian isn’t alone in believing the line coming out of Spurs right now, that the club haven’t given up on Dele Alli. The proof as ever will, be in the pudding – or in this instance the quality of the offers that can be encouraged between now and the end of this winter window. Dele hasn’t played properly under Mourinho this season and this is something we have covered at some length, the answers are in the All or Nothing documentary. Even Dimitar Berbatov suggested that the boy knuckle down – yes, that was from the languid Bulgarian!

A source close to the club tells me that Spurs do not see a future for Dele Alli, and are simply seeking to create an environment whereby the player isn’t seen as devalued, because he’s surplus to requirements. As Mr Hytner points out, the 24-year-old was down to feature in the Fulham game, but against opposition perceived as tougher, Leeds United, Alli was pulled. My understanding is that there are trust issues, and Spurs want to tread carefully, in order to safeguard their interests. Additionally, Dele said to be training just fine and causing no disruption.

That transfer site rates him at £34.2 hardly worth selling him for that

Very interesting and odd quote from Ralph Hasenhuttl.
“I was joking with him(Klopp) at the Premier League meeting 1 or 2 months ago that I might once have the chance to take some points off you”. After that ott reaction.

Meetings of the managers of the 20 shareholder clubs to discuss…?

Like so many the match was bizarre. Walker Peter’s on Salah…strange gun shy forwards for Liverpool. They ain’t winning squat this year.

Also there is no match anywhere I can find wear he wears a cap. Except last night, where he was shielding his eyes with it by looks of it.

I would av thought Dele and Poch at PSG would be a cert. Ooooo, when you’re getting dug out by Dimitar for not knuckling down it’s time to have a long look in the mirror…be like being called too heavy handed with the Mrs by Ted Bundy.

We’ll be lucky to get half what he would have fetched two years ago. He’s damaged goods now and throwing him in against relegation fodder is going to fool no one.

I personally wouldn’t give up on him, what he has done once he can do again.

Selling in the next 6-12mo probably isn’t wise from a purely business standpoint, with many clubs in financial difficulties and a depressed market overall as a result. Slightly different if the players is on huge wages and/or with a contract running out, but I can’t see Levy moving him on if he believes (as I do) that waiting until summer or next Jan is likely to bring in significantly more money than selling now. We’re still in a lot of competitions and might need him.

Loan deal (re-callable in case we have injury crisis) with option to buy in summer is probably a good route for Dele’s situation.

Agree but he is not a midfielder and there is no place for him in this team. He does need to be elsewhere.

We need a freshen up in attack so at least one of Alli, Moura or Lamela needs to be shifted.

My choice of those to keep would be Lamela just because he seems a Jose player when fit. Also, Winks might as well see out the season with us and then we’ll see where we are – he has half a season to impress.
