He was the name on every fan’s lips a year ago, a player with potential to deliver. But now it appears he is not wanted by Juande Ramos and is heading for an ignominious departure from White Hart Lane!
TOTTENHAM midfielder Adel Taarabt is attracting interest from Malaga after the Spanish second division side failed to land the youngster at the end of the summer transfer window.
Malaga are thought to have failed with an offer on deadline day but, according to reports, they are keen to rekindle their interest when the January transfer window opens.

The 19-year-old winger last saw action in the Premier League in March when Tottenham were beaten by Newcastle and has not been part of the first-team plans since. After an explosive start to his career at the club, where he displayed immense talent against both Chelsea and West Ham, it appears he is being ushered out of the north London club’s exit doors. Are Spurs fans surprised by this turn of events or was Taarabt never really good enough for the top tier of the game?
