The Rumour

SPURS want to sell Pascal Chimbonda to Blackburn for around £3million as the Londoners chase Marseille’s Lorik Cana, valued at £5m.

The Source: (The Sun)

The Analysis

The obvious question to ask at this juncture is why the hell did Harry Redknapp bring back Pascal in the first place? Since his return in January he has managed just 129 minutes of Premier League football! The 30 year old former Wigan man can still do a job so Sam Allardyce may well be interested in securing the left back however he does of course have the impressive Stephen Warnock to call upon in that role at Ewood Park.

Lorik Cana is a talented midfielder and has been the Marseille captain for two years now and his side only just missed out on their first French title in 17 years so it may take some persuading to convince the Albanian to forgo Champions League football in return for a move to north London but no doubt Spurs can offer him a better contract so that could well be the mitigating factor for the 25 year old.

The Likelihood

Chimbonda to leave Spurs: Yes almost definite
Cana to join Tottenham: Would be a good move by Redknapp
