Recent reports suggested that Lazio are close to signing him as their club president himself wants to get the transfer done but according to The Times, the move to Lazio has also collapsed.

It is now being claimed that the club are considering terminating his contract as he is excess to requirements this season.  This would allow the player to join any club on a free transfer and will also get him off Tottenham’s wage list.

The 36-year-old is undoubtedly a club legend and Spurs fans will always remember him fondly for his 11 years at the club.
