Reports in the Sunday press are linking Tottenham Hotspur with a January move for West Ham United’s Matthew Upson.

Spurs did make a late move for the England defender in the summer transfer window, but were only prepared to offer £4million.  A number of injuries to key central defenders such as Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate have left Spurs needing extra cover at the heart of their defence.

Harry Redknapp is ready to raid his former club again in January, but is not willing to pay over £8million for the 30-year-old.
