DONE DEAL: Tottenham finally sign Liverpool target, plus two more deals confirmed - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Swansea City left-back of last season, Ben Davies, has been confirmed as a new signing at Tottenham Hotspur today, fighting off interest from high-flying Liverpool. The Swans and the Lilywhiteshavebecome very co-operative of late with Michel Vorm also heading from South Wales to North London andGylfi Sigurdsson heading in the opposite direction.
Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City have finalized the transfer deals between each club with Ben Davies and Michel Vorm heading to Spurs, while Gylfi Sigurdsson heads to Swansea.
But in this convenient series of transfer deals, who are the winners and losers? Surprisingly, there are more winners than losers in this deal, which is one of the reasons why the deals between both clubs make so much sense.
Tottenham Hotspur has yet to officially announce the signing of Swansea City left back Ben Davies. However, the Welsh defender has been spotted training with Tottenham Hotspur in Toronto today, ahead of the club's friendly against Toronto FC on Wednesday night.
While Swansea was on its preseason tour of the United States in Illinois, Milwaukee and Minnesota last week, an agreement was reached between both Swansea and Tottenham to send the talented full back to the London club.
This past weekend, Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson left the club's pre-season training camp in Seattle and this morning was reportedly having a medical at Swansea City ahead of a proposed£10million ($17 million) move.
Speculation is that the 24-year-old is part of a deal that will see Swansea left-back Ben Davies go the opposite way to North London.
So far, Tottenham Hotspur is the only club in the Premier League that hasn't signed a player this summer. Despite manager Mauricio Pochettino's claim that he doesn't expect any new additions at Tottenham, reports in England suggest that Tottenham are the favorites to sign left-back Ben Davies from Swansea City.
Tottenham Hotspur have officially unveiled their home and away shirts for the 2014/15 season.
Inspired by former player and manager Bill Nicholson, the shirts mark the 10th anniversary of Nicholson's death. To honor him, the home shirt has the words "Echo of Glory" woven into them from one of Nicholson's famous quotes:
'It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low.
Not quite sure how I coped before the World Cup, but by heavens life has been a struggle in the seven days since it finished. A handy opportunity however, to cast the eye over those lilywhites in action this summer, as well as various other bits and pieces at N17.
First-rate stuff though the tournament was, alas it was not the sort of World Cup to have wide-eyed maidens rushing to the top of their towers and squealing the good name of Tottenham.
It would appear that Tottenham team-mates Sandro (a Brazilian gentleman) and Lewis Holtby (a German by trade) had themselves a little World Cup party last night, with the pair settling in together to watch the semi-final between their two respective nations.
The Arsenal boss has been talking about the new Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal, and how he thinks that the Dutchman will help United back into challenging the current Top Four for the title next season, but doesn't even consider that Tottenham will be part of the battle! "He is going to be a [.
This is pure comedy gold for Arsenal fans, although if there was even the slightest chance of it actually being successful, I would certainly not be smiling. Our north London rivals, Tottenham, must have got their hands on something very powerful and mind-bending to smoke if this transfer rumour report by Metro is true.
Definitely not this fun We have banged on for years here about our dislike for mid-season friendlies. We still think they are money-grabbing, energy-wasting injury magnets but we have always understood your attendance if your childhood club was the opponent. (So mail your letters calling me a hypocrite to "P.
