Tottenham news – Doubt over King future, Gomes praise for Sandro, Spurs in for Adriano?

Gomes praise for Sandro.

After seeing his side progress to the next round of the UEFA Champions’ League, Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has heaped praise on his fellow Brazilian international Sandro after the 21-year-old starred in both legs against AC Milan.

According to, Gomes believes Sandro is a similar type of player to former Brazil coach and legend Dunga, and despite not being such a prominent figure in Harry Redknapp’s side, the former Internacional midfielder may have a very long future at the club.

Gomes said: “Sandro is a good player, really quick. It’s a great time for him at the moment.

“He has quality; he can play as well, hold the ball and win it. He can play and has been brilliant for us.”

Doubt over King future.

It seems Ledley King’s constant injury problems are casting a shadow over his future at White Hart Lane, as well as the rest of his playing career.

The England international has been plagued with injuries for the majority of his career and Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes that his lack of time training will catch up with him.

ESPN Soccernet reports that Redknapp may have to drop into the summer transfer market to find replacements for King and Jonathan Woodgate, with Gary Cahill high on the target list.

Redknapp is keen to give his club captain a long chance, but believes the pressure of performing well at such a high level may prove too much for the 30-year-old.

Spurs in for Adriano?

With Robbie Keane out on loan, and manager Harry Redknapp constantly expressing desires to strengthen his attacking line, attentions have now turned to former Inter striker Adriano after his contract at Italian side Roma was terminated this week.

Adriano has struggled for consistency and form since his departure from the San Siro in 2009, and despite returning to his homeland Brazil for a stint at Flamengo, the international failed to produce the kind of form that was expected in Rome.

According to a report byGivemefootball, Spurs face competition for the 29-year-old’s services with Newcastle United also keen to sign him.
