  • Spurs forward’s long-range goal in stoppage time earns win

Harry Kane has labelled his outrageous goal from the halfway line against Juventus in Singapore as “one of the best of my career”.

The Tottenham forward struck in stoppage time to claim a 3-2 win in the pre-season friendly. Lucas Moura’s interception fell into Kane’s path and he unleashed a first-time rocket that flew over Wojciech Szczesny in the Juve goal.

The England full-back, who made over 100 appearances during a four-season stint at the north London club, has signed a three-year contract at the Wanda Metropolitano. 

Trippier was one of the most impressive performers as England finished fourth at the World Cup in Russia last summer, scoring early in the semi-final defeat by Croatia in Moscow, but endured a dip in form last season.

• Defender signs three-year-deal at Wanda Metropolitano
• He leaves Spurs after four years in north London

Kieran Trippier has completed one of the more eye-catching transfers of the summer to date after joining Atlético Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth at least £20m.

The England full-back, who made over 100 appearances through a four-season stint at the north London club after arriving from Burnley, has signed a three-year contract at the Wanda Metropolitano. The 28-year-old had admitted towards the end of last season that his future at Spurs was in doubt, with Mauricio Pochettino intent on reshaping his squad for what he has called the “next chapter” of the team’s development.

• Defender expected to leave after omission from Asia trip
• Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kévin Nkoudou also left out

Danny Rose has been omitted from Tottenham’s party for their pre-season tour to Asia “to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs” as Mauricio Pochettino’s restructuring of his squad continues.

The England full-back looks set to follow his fellow defender Kieran Trippier in leaving Spurs only six weeks after the pair started in the Champions League final defeat by Liverpool, with Rose left behind along with Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kévin Nkoudou for the tour of Singapore and Shanghai.

Jimmy Greaves had the right idea: football broadcasting should be fun | John Brewin

tir, 16/07/2019 - 22:00

As one half of Saint and Greavsie, the former striker spoke about the sport he loved with enjoyment and wit. We could do with some of that now

“I am someone who believes that what we need without a doubt is more of Jimmy Greaves,” wrote the performance poet John Hegley in Greavsie, an ironic yet affectionate early-1990s paean to a then ubiquitous figure. “The more I get of Greaves, the more my life achieves.”

The Premier League’s paywall model would soon be bringing down the curtain on one of the more curious and varied media careers of an ex-footballer. ITV’s failure to land broadcast rights to what the victor, Sky, would trail as a “whole new ball game” meant the axe for Saint and Greavsie in July 1992.

Aston Villa have been the most active of the promoted clubs; Arsenal look to have work to do; Tottenham have secured their top target; Newcastle are still looking for a manager

What have they done so far? Nowhere near enough. Teenage striker Gabriel Martinelli has arrived from regional football in Brazil and is expected to need some adaptation and development time. David Ospina has departed for a modest fee.

Christian Eriksen running short of options for future away from Spurs

lør, 13/07/2019 - 20:00

Only a handful of sides have the resources and stature to attract the midfielder and he could end up staying at Tottenham

“In my mind I have had the following list for a long time: Ajax-Arsenal-Barcelona. Call it the Marc Overmars route,” Frenkie de Jong said this past week. “But then again, if you can go directly to Barcelona, then you are right where you want to be. Faster than you ever dared to dream.”

It is six years since another elegant Ajax midfield graduate decided to leave in search of his fortune, opting for north London after helping to secure a third successive Eredivisie title under Frank de Boer. Christian Eriksen, born in Middelfart – a small town at the gateway to Funen, Denmark’s third-largest island – had arrived in the Dutch capital as a teenager in 2008, spurning interest from, among others, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United to continue Ajax’s tradition of developing top Danish talent. He was spotted playing for Odense’s youth team by John Steen Olsen, the celebrated Scandinavian scout whose long list of discoveries includes Søren Lerby, Jan Molby and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. His latest protégé fulfilled the early promise by becoming the youngest player to appear at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Tottenham try to hijack Arsenal’s deal for St-Étienne defender William Saliba

• Spurs offer St-Étienne marginally better deal
• Arsenal confident defender will still sign for them

Tottenham are trying to hijack Arsenal’s deal to sign the St-Étienne centre-back William Saliba.

The 18-year-old has agreed a five-year deal with the Gunners and the two clubs were only minor details away from finalising the move. However, Tottenham have made a last-ditch attempt to secure the services of the France Under-20 international by offering a marginally better deal.

Christian Eriksen due at Tottenham training after wish to go brings no bids

• Spurs midfielder has said he wants a new challenge
• His situation has been complicated by Paul Pogba scenario

Christian Eriksen is set to join up with his Tottenham teammates by the end of the week for pre-season training despite having made plain his desire to leave the club more than a month ago.

When Eriksen said in early June that he wanted a new challenge elsewhere this summer, it was designed to accelerate a long-considered exit strategy. The midfielder has been linked with Real Madrid, who like their transfer targets to express publicly a desire to leave their employers, and Juventus.

Tanguy Ndombele: the complete midfielder … as long as he is focused

ons, 03/07/2019 - 13:00
At his best the Tottenham record signing resembles Michael Essien but his attitude has been questioned in the past

Everybody knows how much Mauricio Pochettino loved Mousa Dembélé when the Belgian midfielder was strutting his stuff for Tottenham. “He’s one of the genius players I have been lucky enough to meet – together with Maradona, Ronaldinho, Okocha and Ivan de la Pena,” the Spurs manager once said. And everybody knows how badly he wanted to make a statement signing this summer in order to reinvigorate his project in north London.

Imagine Pochettino’s excitement now. He has done the latter with the £55m club record purchase of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and it is a move that not only plugs the gap left by Dembélé’s departure to Guangzhou R&F last January but promises to rekindle his memory.

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are ready to duke it out in a battle royale to secure the services of Bournemouth central defender Nathan Aké. French sports daily L’Equipe claim Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions have the edge and will sign the 24-year-old Dutch international for up to £40m.

Tanguy Ndombele signs six-year Tottenham deal to seal £55m move

• France midfielder passes medical to become record signing
• Roma considering move for Toby Alderweireld

Tanguy Ndombele has signed a six-year contract at Tottenham after passing a medical. The club have shattered their transfer record to buy the midfielder from Lyon for €62m (£55.45m) plus €10m in add-ons – eclipsing the £42m paid to Ajax for Davinson Sánchez in 2017.

The 22-year-old was Mauricio Pochettino’s No 1 target and Spurs were able to see off late interest from Manchester United. Pochettino has convinced six-times capped France international that the next step of his career would be best served at Tottenham and Ndombele was impressed when shown around the training ground.

Clarke has just completed his breakthrough season, quickening the pulse on his first Championship start against Derby in January before his form tailed off after he collapsed in the dugout while watching the second half at Middlesbrough in February.
