Tottenham Hotspur will face no challenge from Barcelona in the pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah, according to reports.

The contract talks between Toby Alderweireld and Spurs board have stalled and that has led to a lot of rumours linking Tah to replace the Belgian in North London.

Spanish news outlet El Gol Digital claim that Barcelona have been keen to sign the Bayer Leverkusen defender but with Spurs also interested, they are ready to switch their focus so that the North Londoners could easily secure Tah’s signature and consequently allow Alderweireld to depart in summer.

Tottenham remain very much interested in signing Tah should Alderweireld not extend his contract and leave the club in summer.

The club have so far failed to reach an agreement with the Belgian international on a new deal and it is understood they will look to sell him in the summer.

Alderweireld, who has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League, will have no shortage of takers and Spurs are ready to let him go to get a substantial amount from his sale.

However, as per the Daily Mirror, Leverkusen could demand in the region of £35million for their promising centre-back, Tah.

It is said that if Tah is to arrive at Spurs, then Alderweireld would be available for the similar fee with Barcelona expected to take advantage of the situation.

Alderweireld, who has made 17 appearances so far this campaign, seems likely to take the exit route as his wage demands are reportedly not met by the Spurs hierarchy. And that is one of the reasons for the stalling of his contract extension.

The 29-year-old has endured an injury-hit campaign but has been rock solid whenever fit. So, it makes complete sense for our board to sort out the mess and agree to Alderweireld’s demands as he is undoubtedly one of the best centre-backs in England.

Tah is also good but it could take time for him to settle in the Premier League should Spurs sign him anytime soon. At 22, the German is a physically imposing figure, reliable in the air with good ball-playing abilities.

But Spurs just cannot afford to lose Alderweireld and should simply think in sorting out the mess, sooner rather than later.

“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.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
