Player set for Spurs return?

Tottenham Hotspur are planning a move to bring Adam Smith back to the club, according to the Express.

The Bournemouth right-back is being linked with a return to Spurs, who he left in 2014 before Mauricio Pochettino became boss.

With speculation ever increasing that Kyle Walker is Manchester City-bound for around £45million, it is obvious that Pochettino is in the market to bring in another player who can slot into the position.

Kieran Trippier impressed last season and showed that should Walker depart, we have a more than able replacement.

Smith opened up about his anguish of having to leave Tottenham back in 2014.

“The manager at the time said nothing to me about playing, despite the fact I was training with the first-team,” he said back three years ago.

“Only so many players could take part in the first-team pre-season tour and I was told I was going with the reserves to Portugal. I am not going to lie I was very disappointed.

“I had just come back from playing in the U21 European Championship with England, so not being involved in the first-team pre-season tour was hugely frustrating as I was not even given the chance to show what I could do.

“I told my agent there was not much point in me staying. It was very difficult as I had been there since I was seven and my dream was to play for Spurs, but I made a big decision to come here and start my career properly.”

Do you think Smith would make a good signing?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We have to aim higher than Adam Smith, Levy will be selling us down the river with a signing like that, we need real quality, we’ve been so close to winning the title over the last two years, and there is talk of going backwards like this, I hope it’s paper talk cause Spurs fans won’t be happy.
