Halilovic, Bale, Willian, Fryers

Croatian news outlet Jutarnji are claiming that Alen Halilovic's family held talks on Friday at the Maksimir Stadium and agreed terms on a transfer to Tottenham. Until now his father has not wanted him to join Spurs wanting his son to play first team football now.

They go on to claim that Hallovic will now stay at Dinamo Zagreb, where his Dad is a coach, on loan until he is 18. The deal would mean the best of both worlds for Dinamo Zagreb. Their chairman wants the money and he'd get that plus the player for another year.

Another Croatian news outlet, Sportske, reported last week that Alen's father travelled to England to watch his other son Dino play in the Nike Premier Cup for the clubs youth team. They claim he stayed on in London to have talks with Spurs, successfully if Jutarnji are to be believed.

The fee is suggested as being £12.79 million (€15m).

Spanish football expert Guilleme Balague has tweeted that he believes Real Madrid want Gareth Bale to force Spurs to lower their asking price by handing in a transfer request and refusing to play. He goes on to say that he won't do that and Spurs want him to stay another year. Also that Real Madrid won't stop trying but are less optimistic than they were.

AVB was disappointed not to get Willian last summer but he went for daft money to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala. He wants to leave Russia and has turned down Zenit St Petersburg who had agreed a £34.12 million €40m) deal with Anzhi.

Liverpool and Spurs are the two clubs said to be chasing the player who has made no secret of the fact that he wants to play in England and would cost £29.85 million €35m).

Must be something about Russia because Hulk is desperate to leave the place too but all has gone quiet about him at the moment.

Danny Rose was taken off yesterday with 5 minutes to go and when AVB was asked about his defensive options he said: "We have options in defence, we still have (Kyle) Naughton, we have (Younes) Kaboul coming back, we have Zeki Fryers who did very well in pre-season.

"I think we are covered, we might (buy) we haven’t decided yet bearing in mind Fryers' progression."

It would seem the words Tim Sherwood and our coaching staff had with Zeki Fryers about his attitude and work is beginning to pay off. He was bought as a replacement left-back so it can not have been easy for him spending the remainder of the season in the Development squad for us to try and show the league we weren't deliberately trying to circumvent the rules.

His progress is one to keep an eye on.
