Tottenham news - Gallas in MLS link, Hutton: Big 4 is no more, No Bridge move

Gallas MLS link.

Sportingo is today reporting that Spurs’ defensive woes could be about to worsen after it emerged that William Gallas could be on the way out of White Hart Lane amid interest from MLS giants New York Red Bulls.

The club already have France and former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry in their side, and it is thought that they would offer Gallas a “significant” pay-rise to take a plane across the pond. With Gallas being 33, it is believed that he could give serious consideration to the move with the temptation of “winding down his career in the Big Apple.”

Gallas’ wage demands have angered officials at previous clubs Chelsea and Arsenal, and as a result this move could yet prove a possibility. With several Spurs defenders already out of action due to injury, boss Harry Redknapp may need to get his chequebook out in the new year, particularly if the defensive stalwart opts to move across the Atlantic.

Hutton: Big 4 is no more.

Alan Hutton believes that the Premier League “big four” no longer exist, and that more clubs are now capable of mounting a serious title challenge – Spurs included. The impressive form of Man City and Bolton have also lead many to believe that the Premier League is as wide open now as it ever has been, and Hutton is also of this school of thought.

Hutton told The Sun: “I don't think you can see a top four any more. We've probably helped see to that. It's a stronger league now. There are six, seven or even eight team’s right up there challenging for a top-four spot. It's certainly tougher this season.”

Hutton then added: “We always hear about Manchester United and how they're not playing well, but still win. Well, we're the same. We didn't play that well against Liverpool, but we still managed to get the victory. We never give up or settle for a draw. We are an attacking side and we want to attack right to the last minute. We always go for it, it's exciting for the fans. Can we win the title? I don't see why not.”

No Bridge move.

Man City left-back Wayne Bridge is not leaving the City of Manchester Stadium despite interest from Tottenham, according to manager Roberto Mancini.

The Metro is reporting that with little depth behind current first-choice left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Harry Redknapp is keen to add strength in depth to enhance Spurs’ title push.

Mancini, however, said that Bridge plays in every game when he is available for selection, but injury problems have been responsible for his sporadic appearances in the City first team.

The Italian said: “Every time he was available he played. There is no problem, except every game he plays he cannot finish. It is usually a hamstring or a groin problem. He played in Salzburg but after 70 minutes he was injured. He played against Blackpool and was injured. He played against Poznan and was injured. It is impossible he can play because of this.”

With City’s summer signing Aleksandar Kolarov struggling to hold down a regular starting spot during the periods of Bridge’s availability, Mancini remains resolute in relation to keeping the man he sees as his first-choice left-back.

The news means that Spurs may have to look elsewhere to find suitable cover, or competitor for a starting spot, with Newcastle defender Jose Enrique also recently linked with a move to the Lane.

I hope Wenger signs this player, we have been lieknd with him in the past and as he is a compatriot of Vermaelan's and also I believe a relative why shouldn't he join Arsenal. At least we can offer CL year in year out which is more than can be said for Spurs, who are having a one off good year so far. Plus Wenger needs to sign other players as well if we are to keep our best players. Get shot of the dead beats for whatever price and invest in new players and rebuild for the coming season and beyond.
