Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly leading the race to sign James Maddison form Norwich City, with Liverpool close behind the London outfit, according to reports. The 21-year-old has been impressive for Championship side Norwich City this season and his fine form has attracted the attention of the giants from the Premier League.

The midfielder has been in scorching form for Daniel Farke’s side this season, scoring 8 goals and registering 5 assists in the English second division. He scored the winner in the in their last game at promotion hopefuls Bristol City.

Spurs were tracking Maddison even before he joined the Canaries from Coventry in February 2016 but they face competition from Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City, as per Evening Standard. The 21-year-old moved to Carrow Road from Coventry City on the deadline day of the 2016 January transfer window. He signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Canaries and was immediately loaned back to the Ricoh Arena.

The report adds that Norwich are keen on retaining the player beyond this month and are hopeful of not losing Maddison. They would demand at least £20million but are reluctant to sell the midfielder this month after allowing former Spurs winger Alex Pritchard to join Huddersfield.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side remain hopeful of agreeing on a deal with Norwich for Maddison, midway through the season. Tottenham could sign the England Under-21 international in January and loan him back to the Canaries until the end of the 2017/18 season, just like they did with Dele Alli.

Tottenham recently sent promising youngster Marcus Edwards to Norwich and it is believed that the Lilywhites will be the favourites to sign Maddison by the virtue of this.

Poch keeps the record of developing young players into sublime talents and the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli are a testament to his coaching.

Last month, our gaffer suggested that the club needed to sign English players and could do deals in January.

“It’s so important today to identify our targets for next summer,” he said.

“Maybe we need to sign players in January and bring them in six months before. [The Dele Alli deal] is a very good example that you need to anticipate. And today we are at a club that needs to anticipate. We cannot be reactive because if we are, we are going to lose.”

Tottenham seem like the favourites to land the respected young talent that James Maddison is but Liverpool and Manchester City have also been tracking the 21-year-old.

A loan move back to Norwich seems likely if he does leave. If he can follow the same plan as Dele Alli then we surely will be enjoying a top-quality player in the Premier League for the years to come.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
