Transfer news round up

Jol has finally come out and said that none of his three strikers would be leaving. He stated that he needs all three of them still and would actually like a fourth striker as extra back up.
Jol said: "Jermain Defoe is not for sale. He doesn't want to leave, we want him here, he's a terrific player. He's one of the best strikers, I think, in England, maybe in the future in Europe, so why should we sell him."

"I am very happy that I have three strikers of such quality."

Jol continued: "A lot of clubs have four strikers and, in fact, I could probably do with another young forward who is happy to sit on the bench. "But if we had four of the quality we already have, it becomes difficult to keep them all happy as they can't all play every week."

What we need now is Arnesen to come out and say that even "Ridiculous offers" will be rejected. Spurs don't need the money in the bank they need the players on the pitch. The finances are good at WHL and it's players of Defoe, Keane's and Kanoute's quality that put points on the board, not having £30 million in the bank.

Meanwhile Christian Wilhelmsson is still fishing for a transfer. He said he really wants to come a play for Spurs in the Premier League. However, Jol has stated today that Spurs have made no bid for the Swedish international. Watch this space as this story looks like it will continue to develop.

Finally Johnnie Jackson has gone on loan to Watford. Hopefully he can impress down there so we can offload him at the end of the transfer window. Jackson is a decent enough lad but his total inablility to beat anyone leaves him short on quality for the Premiership.

Can I just say that if Jol can solve his right wing problems by doing for Davies what he has done for Brown then things can only get better.
