Wickham expecting Spurs move – reports

7

Tottenham are close to beating Arsenal and Manchester United to the £15m capture of teenage Ipswich striker Connor Wickham.

That is what is being reported in today’s Daily Mirror. Wickham is regarded as one of England’s brightest talents and is rumoured to have told friends that he expects to move to White Hart Lane in the summer.

Wickham turns 18 today and the fact that Tottenham’s assistant academy manager Bryan Klug was head of Ipswich’s academy when Wickham arrived there as a 13-year-old can only be a good thing for us.

Wickham said this week: “I just want to keep playing football. And I want to play football at the highest level.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. looks like a wanker and Elton Johns wife said to me at the Mecca tea shop at the lane that hes not very attractive. I wouldn't know so Im going to ask Julian Clary's opinion

  2. Won’t believe a word of it until the ink is drying on the contract. Personally I think the sensible thing to do here is to buy him and loan him back to Ipswich as many before me will have probably already said. The price tag seems a bit extravagant but it seems to be the current climate for young players now. I would like to think that with the money generated from the sales of players leaving in the summer and some of the cash from the champions league adventure this year that we’re not gonna pin all our hopes on a young boy just turned 18! Surely with that kind of money available we can buy a couple decent strikers a centre back and a left back? Craps what do I know I’m just the poor bloke in the stands who has to pay to watch and wonder just where we could be if we had a strikeforce this season. Lillywhitetilidie.

  3. Absolute agree with you Mark!!!
    The young fella is banging in goals is confident and deserves a shot instead of playing in the lower leagues
