Tottenham winger Lennon chased by Stoke

According to ESPN, Stoke City have registered an interest in Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, who has fallen increasingly out-of-favour at White Hart Lane.

The 27-year-old, who is the club’s longest-serving player, has rarely featured since Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager last summer; making just three Premier League starts. More often than not he has found himself behind Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli in the pecking order.

It now appears that Pochettino would be willing to offload Lennon in January, as the England international does not feature in the Argentine’s long-term plans. Tottenham would be looking for a fee in the region of £7m for the former Leeds United man, which they would then use as funds to pursue other targets.

Several clubs across Europe have been alerted by Lennon’s availability, but the player would prefer to stay in the Premier League. Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United are all said to hold an interest, but Stoke are the favourites to claim his signature at this stage as they look to add pace to their wide areas and not rely on loan signings such as Oussama Assaidi and Victor Moses.
