Spurs linked with Reo-Coker move

Tottenham are considering a move for Aston Villa midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star.

The former England Under 21 International has endured a troubled spell at Villa, in which he has struggled to hold down a regular position and has primarily been used as a utility man for when the team has suffered injuries.

Redknapp enquired about Reo-Coker in the summer, but Villa were quoting close to the £8.5 million that they paid West Ham in 2007.

However, the asking price will have dropped significantly after Reo-Coker was involved in a training ground bust-up with manager Martin O’Neill, and is now valued around the £3 million mark, with the midfielder’s contract due to expire in 2011.

This price has also alerted North London neighbours Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger apparently keen to add some experience to his midfield.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. this surely is a load of bull!!
    why dont we try and give players like bostock a bit more experience than brining in Pants players like Reo Coker!!

  2. dont shhot me for this but could he provide cover for Wilson?

    Bostock rose and Parret would not seem to be in the wilson mold so perhaps for 3 million he is worth a punt

    we are a little light in the middel now Zakora has gone and with huddelstone having to fill in at the back we really only have 2 center mids available (yes ohara is still on our books and is coming back in Jan but that only gives us 4 max (including Huddelstone)) so I think we have room
