Tottenham news – Luis Fabiano deal back on, Dos Santos Napoli interest, Spurs make stadium statement

Every morning A Different League searches the nations press to bring you the latest goings on at Tottenham. Today:

Luis Fabiano deal back on.

The Daily Mail suggests that Luis Fabiano could be on his way to White Hart Lane. The Brazilian, who plays for Sevilla, was linked with a move to Spurs in the summer but he apparently turned down the chance because the club did not interest him.

Fabiano instead signed a new contract with the Spanish side but this season he has been limited to just one start and he is behind Frederic Kanoute and Alvaro Negredo in the pecking order. Harry Redknapp is a known admirer of the 29-year-old striker and the player’s agent, Jose Fuentes, hinted that he may be more open to a move to North London in January.

Sevilla have insisted that the striker is happy but Fuentes declared: “If the situation does not change, we will be obliged to look for the exit door.”

Spurs make stadium statement.

Spurs have issued a statement about their Olympic Stadium bid and the club have reiterated that the decision was purely to keep their options open. The North Londoners have faced strong criticism from rivals West Ham and the situation was made worse this week when it was suggested that the Olympic Stadium had become their first choice.

A statement on the club’s official website, however, declared: “We should like to make two things absolutely clear at this stage: firstly, we have registered an interest in the Olympic Stadium site in order to keep our options open going forward. This is a very preliminary stage and a pre-qualification questionnaire was completed jointly with AEG in order to meet the deadline for registration.

“Secondly, we continue to progress the application for the Northumberland Development Project with Haringey Council and will continue to do so with a view to achieving full consent. We have not changed our position and shall not do so without due consideration.”

Dos Santos Napoli interest.

According to IMScouting , Napoli are interested in signing Tottenham’s Giovanni Dos Santos. The attacker has barely featured for the North Londoners since his £4.6m move from Barcelona two years ago and he has gone out on loan to Ipswich and Galatasaray in the past.

The 21-year-old was one of Mexico’s best players at the World Cup and he hoped that he would be able to establish himself as a Spurs regular. This season, however, has only heralded four appearances, three of which were for the bench and he could be set to make a move to the Italian side, who sit third in Serie A.
