One £10m star IN, One £5m star OUT a Tottenham deal that doesn’t make sense

If Tottenham have wads of cash to splash out on keepers then I really don’t see the sense in forking out a British record for this keeper!

The 27 year old PSV keeper is good but I don’t think he is that good. And there are many other keepers out there more worthy of splashing the cash on. Whilst it’s clear that Gomes has a great record it should be noted that this record is in the mostly sub-standard Eredivisie where incredible scoring records are equally hard to judge in terms of quality.

Of all the keepers linked with a move to White Hart Lane Carlo Cudicini and Robert Green, although playing for arch rivals, would be the wisest. In fact Scott Carson would be a third choice that would be well worth considering. Which keeper do Spurs fans want to replace the seemingly exit-bound Robbo?
