Unaware of any Tottenham interst


So many websites suggesting Tottenham are trying to sign 25-year-old (26 next January) Ajax right-back Joel Veltman simply because of a Vincent Janssen joke and our scouting of him for a year.

Tottenhan have in fact had no contact with Veltman and his disciplinary record isn't good. He picked 12 yellow cards and 2 red cards this season which is a rather troubling statistic.

The fact that he is only £8 million (€9.11m - AUS$13.55m - US$10.2m)  it seems does fit in with our transfer strategy. We are not interested in paying big money for older players and we will not pay silly money for players either.

"I have spoken with my agent, but he is unaware of any interest from Tottenham, An offer from Ajax to renew is a nice gesture, they want me to stay but this could be the moment to look at other options, The right club will have to come along. There is nothing concrete for now, but I am not in a rush."

Daft figures are being thrown about for some average players at the moment so we will continue to look for sensibly priced young players who can grow in value, but who can add to the first team squad.

Whenever a transfer story appears, the first question is age, then price. If those two criteria aren't met then you know the story has no legs. Very little information comes out of the club now and the press do tend to jump to incorrect conclusions rather frequently.

  1. Exactly the type of player we need though…gives Poch added options at the back without upsetting the balance of the team e.g. his addition would allow Dier to play in holding MF or provide cover for Toby.
    I was impressed with his performance against MANU.
    I wouldn’t worry about his disciplinary record…Victor’s was no better.

  2. I believe Victor's was specific to his last season at The Saints where he felt he'd been held back against his will. A different prospect from someone who's stats are consistently at that level. Otherwise, certainly a prospect that would seem to fit.
