Reid for Spurs link “highly unlikely”

Manchester-United-transfer-Winston-Reid-402165Winston Reid is today being linked with a move to Spurs – the third club in as many months!

Nothing has ever been very clear in this saga but ClaretandHugh has learned that it may be an unlikely story as the North Londoners aren’t noted for paying the highest wages and have 14 defenders on their books already.

A leading agent told us today: “The top whack at white Hart Lane is about £62k a week unless you are Gareth Bale! They’d have to rate him very highly to go there. It looks highly unlikely”

“I think there was some interest when Tim Sherwood was in charge but it seems unlikely now. They do after all have 14 defenders!

The Mirror is reporting that Spurs “have made a stunning offer” for the 26 year old and are hopeful of tying up a summer deal when he is on a free transfer.

However, we were immediately told by a top Hammers source ” There has been no bid for him from anywhere. It’s news to us!”

Slowly, it seems, the odds may be shortening on him signing a new deal with the Irons!

  1. If im not mistaken, didn’t DS say no dealing with Spurs in transfer market

  2. No dealing with that lot but in the summer there is not much we can do to stop him going there but I though he wanted to move to a bigger club LOL Diami springs to mind

  3. If he wants to go and either of them give us enough Monet to buy Jenkinson then let him go ,Tomkins and Collins looked good Tuesday and with Booth ,Nenry and Kouyte we have cover Oxford and Booth are the future and if we get one more good centel defender then we have done well,he won’t get in either of there teams any way.

  4. If I’m honest im not sure what is the most boring, Reid being linked to nearly every club in the prem(still no bid received) or let’s give the idiot Morrison one more chance rubbish. The lad has had every opportunity to prove himself and mucked them all up!

    Is anybody else as bored with all this as I now am?
