Tottenham backed to sign England international


Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino are not afraid to give young talent the chance to impress when earned, with the likes of Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp, Davinson Sanchez, Juan Foyth, Kyle Walker-Peters and more epitomising this.

Spurs have also now gone well over a year without bringing in a single new player to the squad.

The club became the first Prem side in history not to sign a player in the summer transfer window last year, before extending the record to an entire season.

Despite opening their brand new stadium for its first test event at the weekend, you would think that Spurs and Levy still have some funds tucked up their sleeve for the summer.

A marquee signing to take into the new stadium would be the perfect way to get the new White Hart Lane rocking in 2019/20.

Ex-West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop has told the Express that he believes Spurs and Poch will go out and sign Jadon Sancho to make such a statement.

He said: “I just feel that this is a perfect fit for Sancho and his talents.

“Also coming together, I spoke about Pochettino, I think he will still be at White Hart Lane come next season.

“Let’s keep in mind that Daniel Levy and Spurs have barely spent any money over the last couple of seasons.

“I think, new stadium opening, Pochettino, who I think will stay, given Solskjaer, given Zidane and Real Madrid, those were the two big clubs really after Pochettino reportedly, Pochettino will be promised money.

“And if I’ve got a whole lot of money to spend and I’m looking for an up and coming talent, that maybe available, and maybe acquirable, Jadon Sancho ticks all those boxes.

“I think Spurs spend heavy on him.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Jason Sancho would be a great addition to the squad. My only concern is that this piece of information/opinion, comes from Shaka Hislop, that well known arsehole. I don’t think anyone would give tuppence for his, Craig Burley or Steve Nicoll’s opinions.

  2. Get him in and along with Sessegnon, Zaha, and Grealish we would have a much better team next year. I wish also that Toby, Jan and Christian will stay. Bale will be welcome back but only with the salary that the others have. If he does not accept let him rot at Real.

  3. hmmmm… much as i’d love to think Spurs would go from spending £0 in nearly two years to £80m+ on one 19 year old…..i think £8m on a 19 year old from Ligue Un is more likley
