Spurs Find Bidder Interested in £15m Pair: Should Harry Ask for More?

Summer clear out plans continue apace!

The Rumour

Football - Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United Carling Cup Final

Sunderland want to sign Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora AND his team-mate Darren Bent.

New Black Cats boss Steve Bruce aims to hijack Spanish club Seville’s attempts to sign Ivory Coast star Zokora.

And that means Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn will try to thrash out a double deal, worth about £15million, for Zokora, 28, and striker Bent, 25.

The Analysis

Spurs have a big squad and it seems to have more than a few names within it that Harry Redknapp wishes to have removed as he looks to make Martin Jol and Juande Ramos’s signings a thing of the past, with some obvious exceptions of course.

Didier Zokora is a considered a frustrating player by just about every Tottenham fan I know. A player capable of mistakes and errors who is also able on occasion to make startling surging 80 yard runs that make you realise that he was initially intended to be the club’s answer to Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira. The midfielder’s time at the club appears to be coming to an end as does another Black Cats target Darren Bent.

Will Daniel Levy be willing to let both go for a combined fee of £15m, I think not, after all some tabloids are reporting that the club want more than that for Bent alone!

The Likelihood

Bent and Zokora to join Sunderland: The north-east side are making something of a habit out of buying Spurs players having snapped up three last summer!
