This youngster was all set for a bright future at White Hart Lane, but something seems to have gone horribly wrong, and now he looks set to leave the club!
West Brom are ready to offer £2 million for Tottenham midfielder Adel Taarabt.
The 19-year-old has made eight appearances for Spurs in the last two years since joining from French club Lens but was not even given a squad number by manager Juande Ramos at the start of this season.
New boss Harry Redknapp has restored Taarabt to the first-team squad and the Baggies – who have netted just ten Premier League goals this term – could see the French Moroccan as the answer to their problems, according to the Mirror. (tribalfootball.com)
He arrived with a bang, entertaining the Spurs faithful with his cameo appearances against West Ham and Chelsea, and everyone was singing his praises. It looked like the club had a really good find on their hands, but then something happened. Now it appears Taarabt is not really up to scratch, and that his White Hart Lane career is over before it even began.
Good luck to the kid, as a move to the Baggies may work in his favour and help resurrect a career that really did look like it was going to take off. Do Tottenham supporters think that Redknapp should give Adel another chance?
