The Daily Telegraph today report that goalkeeper Paul Robinson has had enough of life at White Hart Lane. The player has not featured for Tottenham since a dismal performance against Reading on 5th January, with understudy Radek Cerny taking his place for Spurs’ last four matches.
Robinson stopped short of submitting a formal transfer request but, after losing his place in the Tottenham team to Radek Cerny, he will know that he needs regular first-team football to resurrect his international career under Fabio Capello.
While Manchester City have been monitoring Robinson’s situation and Tottenham are mindful of his predicament, they are unlikely to sell until they have secured a replacement.
It’s been a torrid few months for Robinson, who has now lost his place for both club and country. Very few people now regard him as England’s best goalkeeper, while it would be no surprise to see Capello leave him out of the Italian’s first squad for the game against Sunderland next month.
