Curtis Davies to Spurs in £7m deal?

Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies has become the latest player to be linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Spurs are set to make a £7million move for the out-of-favour Villa player.

According to the report, Harry Redknapp is interested in the former England Under-21 defender as cover, due to concerns over the long-term fitness of Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate.

Davies is short of the 60-game mark he needs to trigger a new deal at Villa and could be sold in order for Martin O’Neill to raise funds for other positions.  Another possible option is a deal which would involve Jermaine Jenas heading the other way – especially if James Milner departs Villa Park.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If he aint good enough for Villa he aint good enough for teh Tottenham.

    I guess it depends on Ledley and Woody on how we stand but I dont believe we need anymore CB’s We have Bassong ( who will get bettter and has had a decent season) Dawson is awesome, Thud can play there, Charlie can play there.

  2. what about Cannavaro on a free? or Carvalho from Chelsea. He'd cost the same and bring considerably more experience at the highest level. Let's not settle for second best this window and go all out for genuine quality.

  3. Utter rubbish and yet more pointless media speculation. Not good enough for Villa, so certainly not good enough for Spurs. Turned us down once before and bad-mouthed us last season. Seem to recall he’s a Gooner too!

    Micah Richards would be a good buy at the right price and Klaer seems to be an excellent prospect who is reportedly on Harry’s radar. Otherwise the defense is in excellent shape.

  4. How strange this rumour was posted on a message board yesterday by an 'ITK'. And here it is in the Mail (and Guardian). With Dawson, King, Bassong, Kaboul, Huddlestone, Corluka and the hopefully-recovering Woodgate do we need another CB? We haven't even sold Dervite yet. I wish we would focus on that top striker and goal-scoring central midfielder.

  5. With Leds the way he is and if we were to loose Dawson with a bad one come the new season would you be happy with Bassong and Kaboul covering our back line.I feel we need to rid ourselves of woody and add one more in there who can do the job .I think it will be Richards who will get the nod from Arry .A keeper will also be added as cover for Gomes and then Arry will work on his front line with Keane and Pav making way for Dzeko and Bellamy .These two give Arry options and with Bellamy he will fire up things one way or the other.A last one will be another midfielder with Pienaar looking like the man who could get the nod.

  6. Sorry why are all these posts referring to players like Hudd and Corluka as possible centre back replacements. yes they can play there, but i for 1 wouldnt feel comfortable seeing them line up against the likes of Barca because we dont have a quality replacement for that position. King could easily get injured, woody cant be relied on and so if we got another injury to Daws or Bassong (who i still think mite not be quite up to champ league standards) then we will be left short. appreciate there are some quality CBs out there but they would come at a cost and we need a decent squad player, not necessary a guaranteed starter. Davies showed true quality before his injury and only recovered towards end of season. Harry has a knack at getting players back to their best and at £7m think he would be a good addition to the squad.

  7. On the face of it, this looks like a good buy for us. He's young, is quality, has the scope to get better and he could learn alot from the master Leders. As long as he knows he's being purchased as a cover player initialy and not a regular starter

  8. I think this would be a good deal Hudd and Corluka are not really good enough at centre back and i have real doubts over Bassong. It wont be £7 million it will more likely to be Jenas and a small amount of money

  9. I think this will be a good deal Hudd and Corluka are not good enough to play at centre back and i have real doubts over Bassong it wont be £7 million more likely to be Jenas and a small amount of money
