This source cleverly works out that the cost of signing this veteran would essentially make the potential free transfer an expensive price to pay!
Heskey could cost Tottenham £12million – at least!
The England international striker is out of contract at the JJB Stadium in the summer, and will either leave at the end of the season or in the January transfer window.
Whichever, if Juande Ramos wants to add the powerful forward to his squad at Tottenham Hotspur, the 30-year-old is still likely to cost the Londoners a fair packet.
Heskey’s reported wage demands of £80,000-per-week over a three-year contract equates to a little under £12.5million, which is obviously something the Spurs paymasters will have to consider. (fansfc.co.uk)
So there you have it, a free signing sounds good on paper, but when that out-of-contract player demands an astronomical wage packet, it makes you kind of wish you hadn’t bothered. In all likelihood, these wage demands will end up scaring everyone off, so expect Middlesbrough to opt for a move for the former Liverpool man! Just how much do Tottenham fans NOT want this to happen?!
