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.

Gareth Bale and the London Evening Standard tell us the talks are ongoing whilst the Star say Real Madrid have snubbed him, that's a unique take on it, whilst others start speculating that they have no money to pay for him. The Star go on to tell us young striker Alvaro Morata was our top choice and Portuguese full-back Fabio Coentrao and Argentine winger Angel Di Maria were also options to include in the deal.

Take a look at last night's article, it looked at the weakness of the Rose Fryers combination we may have to start with against Crystal Palace. Today;s game may give you an opportunity to look at some of the points raised (opens in a new window).
Spurs left sided weakness

The Star finish by saying the trio have insisted they are staying at the Bernabeu. Utter garbage. Madrid wanted to include players to reduce the cash they would have to pay and Levy doesn't want players included, cash if you want him boys. Coentrao has expressed a strong desire to get away from Madrid as he hasn't settled and the fans don't like him, he gets booed. There are rumours that he has agreed wages and could sign for us next week.

In other Gareth Bale news his 'Eleven of Hearts' celebration logo has been successfully trademarked. That could stand to make him up to £3million a year, according to Nigel Currie, director of sports marketing agency brand-rapport.

He said: "The possibilities are huge for Gareth Bale. Once he has that right he can cash in on it and become a more well-known player.

"A third of his overall income could be made from his image rights, potentially up to £3million a year."

Continuing the policy of linking us with virtually ever midfielder in the world the Mirror say we are after AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic again.

Whilst Sportske Novosti report Daniel Levy was spotted with Dinamo Zagreb executive director, Zdravko Mamić, where they were allegedly discussing the transfer of Croatian wonderkid Alen Halilovic.

Former target Lisandro Lopez has gone to Quatar, another to cross off the list, not that he was ever on it in this window but the press would like to think he was. Who we have tried for and who we have bought show we were and are after a better class of player.

Chelsea U21 2 Tottenham U21 4 - the boys were easily the better side taking a 4-1 lead after going behind and coasting in the game, Chelsea got a consolation right at the end.

Some website are linking us with Carlton Cole and wrongly suggest he played and scored 2 in the behind closed doors friendly against Enfield Town. The lad is using our facilities to stay fit for which ITK suggests he is digging his hand into his pocket.

Tottenham have denied Barcelona have made a bid for Belgian midfielder Jan Vertonghen. Belgian paper Het Laatste Nieuws has reported Barca have offered £23 million.

And finally Sunderland are said to have come back in for Cardiff target Tom Huddlestone. Willl Tom get over his phobia about signing his name on a bit of paper, we'll see.
