Spurs transfer news

News surrounding Luca Modric increases by the day. Real Madrid are look like the most likely destination. A move that will pay for new transfers for Tottenham. So who’s going to take the midfielder’s role at Tottenham?

Tottenham have signed the Icelandic Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea. Reported picking up a 5 year contract Sigurdsson must have the full backing of the Spur hierarchy. Something the Icelander is most happy about because he believes ‘Spurs are going places’. A top for place and Champions League football?

Sigurdsson has shown signs that he can live up to being Modric’s replacement after netting 7 goals in 19 appearances for Swansea.

A more likely replacement for Modric is the Brazillian wonder boy Oscar rumored to be making a £20million move from a Brazillian side. This looks like a Villas-Boas inspired move whereas Sigurdsson’s possibly isn’t.

As Villas-Boas looks to make is mark it’s alarming how much he is changing the team around. Brad Friedel’s place is in doubt and apparently Villas-Boas is considering changing van der Vaart. Players that where fundamental in Tottenham’s success in the 2011/12 season.

It will be an exciting start to the new season.
