The 26 year old moved to White Hart Lane in a £9m deal in the summer of 2013 and played a limited role under both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood in his debut campaign.

This season the former Toulouse man has seen more action but is still seemingly behind Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb in Mauricio Pochettino’s pecking order and as such may be considering his options.

Indeed Capoue was entirely missing from Tottenham’s squad on Saturday, with Brazilian Paulinho earning a first Premier League start of the season, leading to speculation as to his future at the north London club.

One wonders if the French international will be open to a move to either Villa Park or the Hawthorns or indeed if either club can offer a salary similar to that which he currently receives at Spurs.
