Brentford want to sign Tottenham Hotspur target Dennis Cirkin
Cirkin has impressed one and all with his performance for the Black Cats in the Championship, ever since making the move from Spurs. Now, the North London club are looking to resign the talented left-back.
The youngster, who was injured for a fair bit this season, has now made the return for Sunderland. It remains to be seen how the 20-year-old shapes up for the rest of the campaign and if other teams make a move for his services in January.
The former Spurs left-back made an excellent return from injury against Wigan Athletic, scoring his first senior goal and providing an assist to help the Black Cats claw their way back after going behind in the 2-1 win.
The English left-back, who can also play comfortably as a centre-back and has a contract with Sunderland until 2024 (transfermarkt). He might not cost Spurs or Brentford much considering he doesn’t have much time left on his current deal.
Spurs apparently have a £6m buy-back clause for the player but they are likely to face serious competition from the Bees. Thomas Frank’s men apparently view Cirkin as a long-term replacement for Rico Henry.
The talented youngster has played ten times across all competitions scoring one goal and providing one assist for Sunderland till now. He made 41 appearances last time around in his debut season for the Black Cats.
It’s still surprising as to why Tottenham chose to sell the player on a permanent deal when he showed so much promise. It would have been better off for the North London club to loan the player out.
