TOTTENHAM could face a battle to keep hold of new captain William Gallas with MLS clubs queuing up to make him a money-spinning offer to join Thierry Henry in America.
Gallas has been a revelation at White Hart Lane in recent weeks. Having been given the captaincy, he has inspired Spurs to victories over former club Arsenal and Liverpool and helped them qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Manager Harry Redknapp has already described free-transfer Gallas as one of the signings of the season and is keen to take advantage of the option of a further year on the initial 12-month deal he signed.

But New York Red Bulls made Gallas an offer in the summer and other MLS clubs have been alerted to his good form and the fact he could become available if Spurs do not act quickly to tie him down to another year. (Daily Express)

Harry Redknapp must have been pleasantly surprised with the fact that veteran William Gallas has managed to stay injury free as all around him in his position fall to injury after injury, perhaps it would have been wise to have secured the former Arsenal and Chelsea man on a longer deal as it appears that the MLS may look to strike and take the French defender when the season comes to an end.

With the likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Ledley King and Michael Dawson out injured and Younes Kaboul being hauled off during Tottenham’s win over Liverpool on the weekend, Gallas has become even more important to Redknapp’s hopes for success this season.
