One bit of wild gossip with no real back up or press links says that Spurs would be prepared to let us have… wait for it…. David Bentley, Jermaine Jenas AND Robbie Keane for our very own Ashley Young.
Blimey. That is starting to look – albeit totally made up I am quite sure – like a great deal? Bentley on form is a top class winger. Jermaine Jenas appears to be a marmite player but I was concentrating on both him and Keane over in New York as they played v Sporting Lisbon and the New York Red Bulls and I like his movement and his distribution.
As for Robbie Keane, my Spurs mate isn’t quite so sure and thinks the player might have run out of steam now but again, it appeared to me, albeit in a pre-season with little pressure, that he was making good pass and moves + intelligent positionning. We have the pace at Villa, he could add a little bit of wisdom to the moves perhaps?
All mad speculation really but hey, why not, lets ask a poll.
Would you take those three for Ashley Young or is Young ‘irreplaceable’?
Oh and some pants about a deal being agreed for James Milner. I’ll believe it when I see it on the official site.
