The president of Ligue 1 club Toulouse, Olivier Sadran, in an interview with French radio station RMC suggested their 24 year-old defensive midfielder Etienne Capoue would be joining Spurs.

When asked about the potential of a move to White Hart Lane for the player, Sadran said of the versatile French international, "He will go there."

Reports suggest talks are taking place today on a 4 year deal for around £8.6 million (€10m) + £2 million (€1.72m) add-ons.

Capoue's salary in 2012 was £814,518 (€948,000) which is £15,663 (€18,229) a week. Even doubling that would still only leave him on around £31,000 (€36,080) a week, well within our budget. Standing at 6' 2" (1.89 m) he can also provide cover as a central defender, a position we are short in.

His signing could spell the end for Tom Huddlestone. Cardiff City has a bid for Capoue accepted 2 weeks ago so could now firm up their interest in Huddlestone instead who would be surplus to requirements at Spurs this season. We could expect to recoup £5 million (€5.82m) of Capoue's fee if Huddlestone joined Cardiff.

A young Spurs team played a game away at Cambridge City and beat them 5-0 last night with goals from Bentaleb, Falque 2, Fredericks and Ceballas.

Tottenham XI: Miles, Fredericks, Ward, Ball, Stewart, McEvoy, Coulhurst, Ceballas, Falque, Bentaleb, Lamerias.
Subs: Vigouroux, Gallifinco, McEnett, D McQueen, A McQueen.

Cambridge 0 Spurs 1 - Bentaleb makes no mistake with a great effort from distance that Barrett can do nothing about.
Cambridge 0 Spurs 2 - Shaquile Coulhurst chests a ball down into the path of Yago Falque and he fires home from the edge of the penalty area with a low drive.
Cambridge 0 Spurs 3 - A speculative long range effort from full-back Ryan Fredericks deceives Zac Barrett and ends up in the back of the net
Cambridge 0 Spurs 4 - Falque makes it 4-0 with a close range effort.
Cambridge 0 Spurs 5 - Ceballas curls a superb effort into the top corner leaving City’s substitute keeper Enol Ordonez no chance.
