Right let's get into the Tottenham News Shorts - Issue 10 recent news which concerns Gylfi Sigurdsson, Michel Vorm, Karol Linetty, Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen


Swansea City are after £10 million rated midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson who spent time on loan at the Welsh side. With Mauricio Pochettino having agreed to the possible purchase of Swansea left-back Ben Davies to two clubs are locked in complex negotiations.

Swansea naturally value Davies higher than ourselves so we wait to see whether a figure somewhere in the middle can be agreed. Since writing this piece the Daily Mirror are claiming an £8 million fee has been agreed between the two clubs with other papers revealing that terms have already been agreed in principle with the player.

The People report that we are after Michel Vorm as well but that looks unlikely with Hugo Lloris not looking to leave. However Vorm is now the number 2 at Swansea and Daniel Levy might be figuring he can get the keeper included in any deal as back-up to Lloris.

It's a game of poker with his Swansea counterpart Huw Jenkins. Crystal Palace have also expressed an interest in 24 year-old Sigurdsson who has never really found a role at Tottenham.


Tottenham are still considering making a move for Lech Poznań teenager Karol Linetty. The 19 year-old Polish international midfielder, he has 2 caps, would cost around £2.5 million.


Emmanuel Adebayor has had a first hand view of summer signing Christian Eriksen and has been suitable impressed.

“He’s a great talent and a great professional. He has great vision too. He trains hard every day, early in the morning does his gym work ready to train and before the game you can see how he prepares.

“His contribution this season has been unbelievable. It’s his first season in the Premier League and he will only get better next season.”

Jan Vertonghen was delighted to have captained his country at the World Cup and to score the winning goal made it a very special day for him.

“It was even bigger than I could ever dream of. My team-mates were obviously all very happy for me and it was special for Mousa as well because I’ve spent most of my time with him here. He was very happy.

“It was a very special moment to lead out my country at a World Cup game. I felt very honoured.

“I always try to get on the scoresheet and I was happy I managed to do it.”

The game saw a penalty claim against Mousa Dembélé after 7 minutes, Vertonghen blast a free-kick wide after 18 minutes, Dembélé lose the ball resulting in the Belgian keeper having to make a save after 30 minutes, another Vertonghen free-kick straight into the wall after 37 minutes, Dembélé booked for kicking the ball away after 50 minutes, Nacer Chadli so Chadli have a deflected shot after 73 minutes, me on after 60 minutes, a brilliant covering tackle by Vertonghen after 64 minutes and Vertonghen score from a tap-in after following up a shot after 77 minutes.
