Juande looks to an established quality centre-back to help resolve long-term defensive issues.
Tottenham have emerged as the front runners to snatch the signature of Vfb Stuttgart’s Portuguese international centre back Fernando Meira, following the 30-year-old’s departure from the club.
Recently linked with Juventus, Liverpool and Galatasaray, the 30-year old Stuttgart captain has left the Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion, with the club’s website confirming Meira’s departure, following six-and-and-a-half years with the club. (Daily Mail)
Meira is a pretty solid customer who at 30, obviously isn’t a long-term talent to count on. However, he could still be a very useful player to keep King and Woody on their toes, and perhaps more importantly to help in case either suffers injury concerns. He has a great deal of top-level experience which could also benefit Tottenham as they embark on what could be another long season with another UEFA Cup campaign to look forward to. Do Spurs fans think the addition of experienced campaigners such as Meira would help add depth to the squad or is it better to try to bring in younger players to build for the future?
