Once again, we have reached that time of year where there is a great deal of press speculation linking us with players from all around the world.
Sporting Director Damien Comolli noted: “The majority of the reports that I have read are completely wide of the mark. I feel it is important to clarify a couple of things that are unhelpful - namely that reports that Darren Bent is for sale are totally inaccurate and, furthermore, we are not in the market for any strikers.”
As always, we should like to remind our supporters that our official channels – website tottenhamhotspur.com and mobile service spurs(((mobile))) - will carry informed, accurate and timely information as and when it is appropriate to do so.
The above is from the official site.
Ok. So basically everything relating to Fred is pure fabrication. Thought I'd clarify that for everyone. No bids from Spurs. Lyon and his agent are liars. Fred is a liar. Spurs have made no attempt to sign him. Not easy is it, following transfer dealings. Bit like an episode of Lost.
The deal didn't complete, dead in the water, so suddenly it never happened. Why even bother making this statement. Who cares if the player decided against a move? Why focus attention back on us? Typical Spurs, eh?
