News Briefs

A selection of the news headlines today, some with links. Harry Redknapp, our academy, new contract offers, transfer news, take your pick.

Ex-Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is close to agreeing a £10m deal to take over United Arab Emirates club Al Jazira. (Source: Sun Sport)

No doubt he will still receive abuse from the mindless minority in our fanbase. Why do people hold grudges, it just makes them into unsavory sorts and doesn't affect the other party (intended victim) one iota.

Tottenham keen to tie Lamela, Dembele, Eriksen and Chadli to new deals after good start to season. My story:

Make you minds up chaps! Rather suggests they are both guessing doesn't it.

Tottenham are set to bid for West Brom star Saido Berahino in January. (Source: Daily Star)

Unsurprisingly WBA are not seeing the best of Saido Berahino this season, read the THBN article o the situation later tonight.

Tottenham's academy was 10 years in the making... and it's now paying off |

Always good to read articles pertaining to areas of the club other than the first team. You can read the THBN take here: The Tottenham Finishing School

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club have already begun targeting new signings.

Every club in the country has started targetting new signings, it is a constant process not something you suddenly realise you have to do at the last minute, it's not like men Christmas shopping!

Tottenham are still paying Emmanuel Adebayor's £100,000 a week salary, despite him having left months ago. (Daily Telegraph)

Emmanuel Adebayor could be set for a move to Chelsea, and Spurs might have to pay him to do so

What isn't made clear in any of this is the fact he is paid periodic lump sum payments as part of his settlement agreement that also means he is not allowed to talk about his time at Tottenham. If we had paid him a lump sum you have to question whether he would have kept quiet, this wat Daniel Levy has silenced him while he is still due payments. If he wnts to join another club it may well be that he had to forgo the remaining payments, I don't know that but I suspect it given stories suggesting any club has to negotiate with us how much they are going to pay towards wages, even though he is no longer in our employment.

Sound carzy doesn't it and it is probably totally inaccurate, I don't see how it is legal under employment law. Forfeiting future money if he signs for another club before 30 June 2016 makes perfect sense to Spurs and seems very likely. What we are not doing is paying him £100,000-a-week in the manner suggested by these reports.

Tottenham's next 7 Premier League matches: West Brom (A) Newcastle (H) Southampton (A) Norwich (H) Watford (A) Everton (A) Leicester (H)

They may look fairly straight forward, but our mental approach to each individual game is key. These of course are only our Premier League games, there is a tie against Monaco in which we need a point to be played as well.
