Erik Lamela in pictures

I have noticed on this tour wherever Lamela is Lewis Holtby is not far away, I wonder if the German has been assigned to help him or whether these two have simply gravitated together.

Holtby always seems to have a smile on his face and so now does Lamela, anyway a quick look at the new Erik Lamela in pictures beginning with a Lewis Holtby tweet:
Thank you Seattle!!!:-)))

I'm looking forward to this new happy Lamela finally showing us the budding surperstar so many people, especially Italians, believe he will become.

Even stars are star struck and want their picture with their sporting heroes. Steve Nash, OC, OBC is a 20-year-old Canadian professional basketball player playing for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. He grew up playing football (soccer) and is a huge Tottenham Hotspur fan, his dad was born in Tottenham. He would love to own a little bit of Spurs when his basketball career finishes as he told the New York Times in 2007.

"I'd like to be an owner. It's something I could do for the rest of my life after my little window of popularity dies. I've been a passionate supporter all my life. My parents are from north London and so it's not like I'm some Yank who wants to make a profit out of football. I don't care about making money. I just want to see Spurs succeed and, if I can help, that's great."

VIDEO: Player thoughts prior to the tour

The next game is tonight, game 2 of the 2014 USA & Canada Tottenham Pre-season Tour this time in Toronto where former favourite Jermain Defoe is now rather successfully plying his trade.

Tottenham players gives their thoughts about going on tour, even the ones who are not there like Jan Vertonghen who looks forward to them. Adebayor is another who hasn't made it which is unfortunate because he thinks they talk funny and sounds as tough he was going to enjoy it.

VIDEOS: Spurs open training session wide move

Tottenham are in Toronto and just like in Seattle they had a free open training session for anyone to come along and watch.

Below are a few videos of the session that show a drill playing a ball wide for various types of cross, which maybe we will see in the game later.

Davies, Sigurdsson, Vorm announced

At last the deals have been announced, Ben Davies was completed and signed a couple of days ago and started training with his new teammates while the other two deals were completed so both clubs could announce new signings.

Davies, Sigurdsson, Vorm announced

Swansea wouldn't wanted to have just announced departures so all three deals separate were completed before being announced together.

Ben Davies, who has been the Swansea Young Player of the Year for the past two seasons, has signed a Spurs on s 5-year-contract in preference to going to Liverpool we tried to sign him.

Dutch international goalkeeper Michel Vorm, who went to the World Cup with Holland, has signed a 4-year-contract to become the new number 2 and put pressure on Hugo Lloris for a starting berth. There are plenty of Europa League and domestic Cup games to play so he can look forward to some European nights and some arduous treks abroad no doubt.

Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson goes back to Swansea where he spent a spell on loan before joining Tottenham so its familiar territory for him. He has signed a 4-year-deal with Swansea and Spurs fans will no doubt wish him the best of luck.

The fees are undisclosed but Sigurdsson and Davies were valued the same and we were willing to pay £3.5 million (€4.43m) for Vorm so that's a good piece of business completed and one that helps to slightly reshape the squad from the top heavy midfield we had before.
