Speculation is rife that this former Juventus man is about to make a move to the Premier League. Arsenal and West Ham have already been closely linked with a move for this out of contract star but now it appears that Juande Ramos may well be lining up a move.
Appiah has already been linked with a host of clubs this summer including West Ham, Tottenham, Genoa and Juventus (goal.com)
I was flicking through Sky Sports yesterday and they ran a feature of players that are still available after the window is shut. Excuse my ignorance but I thought once Monday had passed then that it was a closed shop for transfers. I appreciate there is the odd loop hole, for extreme circumstances, but I didn’t know free agents could sign up and play with immediate effect. There was a fair list of names on that list like the Brazilian legend Ronaldo and the not so legendary Dane Thomas Gravesen, but one name that stood out like a sore thumb was Ghana captain Steven Appiah; exactly what Tottenham need at this moment and a player who is keen to come to the Premier League.

Ghana captain, Stephen Appiah has recently quit his club, Turkish champions Fenerbahce. Tottenham have been accused of having a lack of balance in their midfield, in the absence of a defensive midfielder. With Didier Zokora filling in at left-back and centre-back, the ex-Juventus player could fit the bill perfectly. (spurs.blogfc.com)
This battling Ghanaian is a top quality player who would cost nothing to capture and although he has had some injury concerns of late if he proved himself to be 100% ready and able to compete then a move for the 27 year old would be a very wise one indeed. He is reported to command a £70k a week salary but considering the saving made by not having to fork out millions for his signature these wage demands may not be so astronomical. So Spurs fans do you think that Ramos should take a gamble and offer a contract to the former Fenerbache man?
