Transfer News: Tottenham dealt a blow in James Tavernier pursuit

According to news from TEAMtalk, Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a major blow in their bid to secure the transfer of James Tavernier. The right-back has signed a new contract with Rangers.

The 29-year-old has grown into an integral player for Rangers since joining them in the summer of 2015 from Wigan Athletic. Tavernier was named the club captain at the onset of the 2018/19 season when Steven Gerrard took over the reins as the manager.

From that point on, Tavernier has grown from strength to strength, becoming one of Gers’ top players. The Englishman has played a critical role in the Light Blues’ Scottish Premiership triumph this season, having contributed with 17 goals and 15 assists from 41 matches in all competitions.

The interest in Tavernier made sense to a certain degree given as Matt Doherty has failed to make the desired impact since arriving last summer while Serge Aurier’s contract expires at the end of next season.

Someone like the Gers captain, who would not only contribute in attack, but also bring in some leadership at the back, would’ve been a good signing. However, any move has now become an unlikely prospect after Tavernier signed a new contract with Rangers, extending his stay at the club till 2024.

“I am delighted to extend my contract at this magnificent club. It isn’t a club really – it’s an institution. To captain Rangers to our historic 55th title is a memory I will hold forever.”

So, any talk of a transfer to Tottenham for Tavernier are unlikely to take place. It remains to be seen if the club decides to bring in a new full-back in the summer or continues with the current options.
