Spurs thought they had Maarten Stekelenburg in their pockets but now they are back on the road again searching for a custodian. Sky Sports reports that the Ajax custodian has refused to trade the Amsterdam Arena for White Hart Lane.
The 25-year old told Sportsweek magazine:
I will continue to be the goalkeeper at Ajax. I have read the reports and rumours, but I was never approached personally by any club.
So there goes Juande Ramos’ chances of signing a goalkeeper. Paul Robinson is almost guaranteed not to feature much in Ramos’ plans for the rest of the season but where does Spurs look for a goalkeeper now?
