Tottenham to sign Man Utd youngster Fryers
Tottenham Hotspur are expected to move for Manchester United’s young defender Zeki Fryers, after the England youth international declined to sign a new contract with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, the Daily Mail has reported.
The Mail adds that United want £4m for the 19-year-old but Tottenham are only willing to pay half that amount, with a fee required because of Fryers’ tender age. Ferguson is said to be willing to let the matter go to a tribunal if necessary.
Fryers has played six appearances for United, two of which were starts in last season’s League Cup. Fryers also featured as a substitute in two Premier League games, the first a 4-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in which he replaced Patrice Evra just after the hour mark, the second a 5-0 victory against Wigan Athletic in which Fryers played the entirety of the second-half after replacing Jonny Evans at the break.
