Chelsea and Spurs have both approached Southampton to sound-out a possible move for Luke Shaw. The young left-back has impressed for the Saints in his debut season of Premier League football, prompting enquiries from two of the top flight's top five. The Times reports that both London clubs hope to take advantage of the uncertainty [.

Gareth Bale of Tottenham celebrates with his Heart Shaped hand gesture (Google Creative Commons)
From defenders to forwards, amateur to professionals, everyone who cares enough about soccer thinks at least once about the satisfaction of finding the back of the net. But for some the goal itself isn't enough, they have to add a choreographed dance, a song, a jump or a hand gesture.

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio was back on the warpath again after today's 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
Di Canio says that the levels of "arrogance" and "ignorance" are worse than those he encountered at Swindon Town. The Sunderland boss didn't mince his words as he complained about the poor discipline at the club.
England manager Roy Hodgson says that Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have "scotched" England's friendlies by scheduling post-season friendlies in the United States and, in Tottenham's case, The Bahamas.
Here's what Hodgson said:
"My thinking, which is based a lot on having been a club manager, is that they'll probably want a few days after the season ends, they won't want to go straight from the end of the season to us, so let them have a week and then we'll keep them a week and then they're free.
Famous BBC commentator John Motson walks through his memories of his favorite FA Cup Finals at Wembley Stadium.
During the four minute video, Motson discusses the 1981 FA Cup Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, and that goal by Ricardo Villa. Next, Motson tackles the 1987 FA Cup Final between Coventry City and Tottenham Hotspur, which featured a shock result on the day but interestingly, Motson pointed something out about the game that I never knew before.
Due to the FA Cup Final today, the Premier League matches have been moved to tomorrow except for Chelsea's match against Aston Villa this morning (US time). Aston Villa versus Chelsea is being played today because the Blues play in the Europa League final in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
For viewers in the United States, the match kicks off at 7:45am ET on ESPN2 and ESPN3.
Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Sunderland Premier League 19th May 2013
Gareth Bale produced yet another magnificent long-range strike to secure a late win for Spurs against Sunderland at White Hart Lane, but even that slice of genius wasn't enough to secure a Champions League berth next season.
Stoke City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur Premier League 11th May 2013
Spurs kept up the pressure on Arsenal in the race for the Champions League, courtesy of a late winner from ex-Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor at the Britannia.
Steven N'Zonzi had given the Potters an early lead but a Clint Dempsey equaliser (after some dreadful defending) followed by a Charlie Adam sending off early in the second half set up an exciting finale.
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is offering his non-playing staff a share of a £1million bonus if they beat Arsenal in this afternoon's match. Ashley is reported to be a Spurs fan, and a Newcastle win would secure Champions League football for Andre Villas Boas' side providing they are able to beat Sunderland in today's other [.
Arsenal have been in a three way tussle with Chelsea and Tottenham for what seems like ages now. There has never been such a close run race for the final two Champions League places and it is all going down to the wire. Chelsea are definitely in the top four, although the Gunners could go above them into third.
With just days to go before a match on Sunday, Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley went out on the town this week to disastrous consequences — only days before their final match of the season against Tottenham Hotspur where Arsenal will be hoping that Bardsley and his colleagues will put up a good fight.
On Sunday, Palermo fell 1-0 to Fiorentina in a crucial match for top-flight survival. The result means that theRosanero will now be playing in Italy's second-tier professional league next season.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini, the man who bought the club in 2002 and helped bring them into the Serie A, has conceded that they will be a struggle to hold onto the likes of Josip Ilicic and many of the club's star players now that the club has fallen to Serie B for next season.
With Arsenal's impressive 4-1 home victory against Wigan Athletic today, the Gunners are just one match away from guaranteeing a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season. For viewers in the United States, the match between Newcastle and Arsenal will be shown live on ESPN2 and WatchESPN.
While Arsenal will need to win on Sunday to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, a draw will be enough if Spurs draw their game.
Emmanuel Adebayor is desperate for Spurs to pip his former club Arsenal to Champions League qualification because he loves the music. The Togo international is a big fan of the UEFA Champions League Anthem, calling it the best music in his life. After scoring the winner in yesterday's win at Stoke, Adebayor said: "It's [.
Spurs manager Andre Villas Boas is hoping his side will be rewarded for their late winner against Stoke with a slip-up from north London rivals Arsenal. After seeing his side beat the Potters, Villas Boas was hoping that the Gunners will drop points against either Wigan or Newcastle in their final two games of the [.
If you're up early today, there's a Championship semi-final playoff on telly today — before the seven Premier League matches get under way. It's between Watford and Leicester at 7:30am ET on beIN SPORT. Leicester won the first leg one-nil. The winner goes through to the playoff final to play either Brighton or Crystal Palace.
Ah. Emmanuel Adebayor I presume. . The Greg Meyer Column. . Cup Day 2013. . The Adebayor Conspiracy. . He's back to his Arsenal best. But for how long. And for whom next season. There are more questions than answers but his display against Chelsea was in the words of that Spurs master Clive Allen " a first class forward display ".
£5000 minimum spend but they take Luncheon Vouchers. . The JimmyG2 Column . I was surprised how sharp my reaction was to the Mirror story about four of our players and friends enjoying a night out at the 'Funky Buddha club in Mayfair this week. I usually manage to ignore such nonsense and write it off as gossip, hearsay and rumour.
One of the worst feelings in football is having to rely on another team doing you a favour in a game you're not involved in. That's exactly what we need from Newcastle this weekend as our nervous battle for a Champions League place reaches its conclusion. Tottenham have what is arguably the easier fixture on paper as they face Sunderland at White Hart Lane, while bitter rivals Arsenal travel to the Sports Direct Arena to take on Newcastle.
Yesterday there was a job to be done and Spurs did what they had to do. Not in a straightforward manner, of course, why break the habit of my lifetime? After conceding the most pathetic set-piece I have ever seen, which is an accolade in itself given our recent sorry history at corners, Tottenham applied themselves fully and properly.
