Just got off the phone to my uncle. He works for an estate agency and he knows someone that went to the same bar (not at the same time) as another person who slept with the PA that works for a football agent not associated with Aston Villa and their players but is associated with a coffee vending machine repair firm that do work in the Birmingham area and he confirmed that this person (the coffee vending machine repair van driver), whilst driving past the car park at Villa Park, noticed the almost giddy (smiling but not grinning) expressions on a group of people leaving the ground (in suits, looking important) and one of them (he lip read this) said "Ben" - which is short for Benteke and was probably cited in conversation because Benteke plays for Villa and the men in suits had just left Villa Park which confirms they've rubber stamped the transfer fee with Spurs. His contract will reflect the time he will be contractually obliged to play for Spurs (2 to 5 years) and money will exchange (by bank transfer - confirmed by another friend that works at a NatWest branch that deals with money transfers which banks do a lot of).
ITK: Tottenham by Gaslight
Player: Nacer Chadli
Chadli is def on. Baldini is working several hours a day to get it done. This is going to happen. We've not bid yet (as confirmed by FC Twente) but we're going to bid soon. Baldini working out the math. If not this week, the next - otherwise expect a bid before the window closes. I know someone at the club, very close to the top. He's trusted and I trust him and he trusts me, which is why I'm on the internet entrusting you with this info knowing there's no way it will find its way back to him or anyone at the club, so Dan won't know of any compromise/leak. Can also confirm we are looking at offloading some deadwood. Expect imminent business soon or soonish, possibly sooner rather than later but not too late as club wants to do business quickly, ins and outs and shake 'em all about.

confirm deal for Benteke is complete. I stuck my hand out of the window
having licked my finger and the wind is blowing accordingly with ample
direction and it quickly evaporated my saliva prompting the suggestion
that the player is on his way to Hotspur Way.
