Rumour: Spurs to bid up to £8m for Upson in January

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.

Would you like Spurs to sign Upson?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Woody and King are out long term and injury prone anyway so this sounds good to me. Harry has a good eye for a player so if he wants Upson then I hope we get him.

  2. Upson is a good player. He could do a job with Bassong and Dawson, but what about longterm? Is Dervite the answer? We have finally developed some consistancy with our fullbacks, but when will he have it at central defense?
