Crystal Palace has emerged as the favorite to land Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason in the summer transfer window.

Rumors have been swirling about the 24-year-old's future at the club despite signing a five-year contract last year. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is known to be keen on a move for the 24-year-old, with reports saying the Eagles are interested in making a £4million bid while Spurs value Mason at around £8million. With the emergence of Dele Alli, Moussa Dembele, and Eric Dier, Mason started only seven Premier League games this season, just two coming after the New Year. But it remains to be seen whether the English international wants to force a departure with Spurs in Champions League next season.

Spurs forward Heung-Min Son confirmed he has no interest in leaving the club despite rumors linking him with a summer exit.

Said the South Korean: "I haven't heard anything from the club regarding those transfer rumours. I'm sure my club will take care of this, and I think there is nothing special for me to be worried about. My first season in the Premier League didn't meet my expectations, but I had a good experience. For my first season, I played with the thought that I should learn many things here." Son joined Tottenham toward the end of the summer transfer window from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring four goals in 26 league appearances in his first Premier League season.

After falling down the ranks at White Hart Lane, Ryan Mason could be on his way to Bournemouth in search of a starting role.

It wasn't too long ago that Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb were the rising stars of the Spurs midfield. Injuries and the emergence of Dele Alli and Erik Dier along with Mousa Dembele's good health have seen Mason relegated to a reserve role. Bournemouth may come to the rescue and offer a starting role as they look to strengthen for their second season in the Premier League.

Tottenham's positive season ended in total collapse, losing to Newcastle United 5-1 and slipping to a third place finish behind rival Arsenal.

A season marked with so many positives for Spurs will be hard to focus on with the way things ended, earning just two points in their final four matches to slip one point off of a second place finish. They simply looked gassed from the opening whistle today and the absence of Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele could not have been more apparent. After falling behind 2-0, there looked to be a window of hope for Tottenham when Erik Lamela pulled one back in the second half, scoring from a tight angle. Then, a red card to Newcastle gave Spurs a man advantage and a chance to get that one point needed to finish second in the table. The bottom fell out for them from that point on though as the Magpies scored three times more despite being a man down. A young talented club should have plenty of ambition heading into next season but the end of this campaign will sting for some time.

With their title chances over, Tottenham are aiming for a 2nd place finish, but they stumbled today, allowing Southampton to come from behind to beat them 1-2 in their home finale.

The day started positive enough as the home crowd showed their support of a positive season for Spurs and the team payed thanks by scoring the opening goal. In the 16th minute, Heung-Min Son played a 1-2 with Erik Lamela and Son was able to dance around the keeper and finish in to an open goal. The Saints would level the score 15 minutes later however, taking the wind out of Tottenham's sails. It looked as though Spurs would regain the lead just before the break when Harry Kane shook of his defender and closed in on Fraser Forster in a 1 v 1 chance but Kane could not beat the keeper. Kane was flustered throughout the match, seeing his minimal chances go off target. After falling behind in the final 20 minutes, Spurs had one last chance to salvage a point in stoppage time but Nacer Chadli's shot was stopped. Arsenal can draw level on points with Spurs if they beat Manchester City today but, with a large gap in goal difference, Spurs still control their destiny with a win next weekend.

After accepting the charge of violent conduct, Mousa Dembele has been suspended by the FA for the next six games, ending the midfielder's season and carrying into the beginning of next season.

Dembele wanted to appeal for a lesser punishment but he gets a ban that is somewhat predicatable - one that is longer than the typical three match ban but one not as long as the ban Luis Suarez received for biting. So now we know where eye-gouging falls in the punishment spectrum. Dembele will miss Tottenham's final two matches this season and the first four next season. Depending on scheduling with league and cup play, he may only miss the first three league games of 2016/2017. Regardless, it is a major blow for Spurs as the Belgian has been an integral part of the club's success. Ryan Mason figures to fill in for the last two games this season against Southampton and Newcastle.

The FA have formally charged both Chelsea and Tottenham with failing to control their players during Monday night's match and Mousa Dembele looks to face an extensive ban for his eye-gouging of Diego Costa.

Both clubs will have fines levied upon them for three separate infractions in which they failed to control their players. These incidents occurred during the 45th and 87th minute of the match as well as a third disruption after the final whistle. The only individual called out in the FA's declaration on their website is Dembele, and they go on to imply that the action he took deserves a heavier penalty than the typical three match ban for violent conduct. There is no reason, in fantasy or reality, to believe that Dembele will step onto the pitch again this season. The question is how much time will he miss at the beginning of next season.

Mauricio Pochettino has played down injury concerns after Toby Alderweireld was forced off during the closing stages of Mondays’ game against bitter rivals Chelsea.

Alderweireld was left lying in a heap following a hard but fair Diego Costa challenge as the game moved into injury time. Following treatment, the defender moved gingerly to the side-lines and with only two Premier League games remaining many believed his season could be over. However, speaking to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws Pochettino revealed: "It’s his knee. We’ll have to have a look, but it should be OK." Fellow countryman Mousa Dembele is another who could see his campaign end prematurely. The Tottenham midfielder was caught on camera eye-gouging Diego Costa as tempers flared at Stamford Bridge.
May 3 - 5:35 PM

Danny Rose has a hamstring issue while Toby Alderweireld picked up a knock in Tottenham's draw yesterday evening against Chelsea, putting two key Spurs defenders' status in doubt ahead of this weekend's match with Southampton.

There are some major talking points coming out of yesterday's draw for Spurs and none of them are positive. They set a Premier League record by accumulating nine yellow cards against Chelsea, amazingly finishing the match with a full XI. Mousa Dembele appeared to have eye-gouged Diego Costa and could face a ban this week that will end his season prematurely, this after Tottenham already lost Dele Alli to suspension. In the final ten minutes and change, Danny Rose had to be replaced by Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld came off hobbling just before the final whistle. All of this while the club were officially eliminated from title contention. Davies can play as an adequate replacement for Rose if the latter cannot go but an absence of Alderweireld would really hurt the club as they attempt to hold on to a final position ahead of rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham's title hopes were officially dashed this evening as they let a two goal lead slip away and finished with a 2-2 draw against Chelsea, making Leicester City the league champions.

It is celebration time in Leicester as Chelsea did what they hoped to do by ending Tottenham's hopes of catching the Foxes. Spurs were set up for a win at Stamford Bridge for the first time in 26 years by taking a 0-2 lead in the first half. In the 35th minute, Erik Lamela slipped a ball to Harry Kane who danced around the keeper and finished into an open goal. Nine minutes later, Christian Eriksen's through-ball set up Heung-Min Son who found the net with a low strike. Chelsea clawed their way in the second half, finding an equalizer in the 83rd minute. Tottenham amazingly accrued nine yellow cards along the way, with each infraction more cynical than the last, but somehow still finished the match without a sending off. It was a classic derby with more physical confrontations than one could count, but unlike Leicester, who have consistently played 90 minutes of football every week without losing their focus, Tottenham lost their cool as the match wound down.

Mauricio Pochettino has announced that he has made a verbal agreement with Tottenham to continue as manager for the next five seasons, extending his current deal an extra two years.

Ink has yet to be put to paper but Pochettino further stated the contract will be signed either tomorrow or Tuesday of next week, with the boss focusing on the derby with Chelsea between Sunday and Monday night. Pochettino has led Spurs to their best season since the advent of the season and with the young talent at his disposal, the future looks bright. The Argentine boss had plenty of rumors floating that he could leave in the summer, with the most buzz suggesting he could take over at PSG. Details of the contract are as of yet unclear, but reports indicate he will be the highest-paid manager in club history. It would be hard to argue that he does not deserve it.

The FA have officially handed Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli a three match ban for violent conduct, prematurely ending his season.

Alli accepted the charge for the FA but attempted to request a lesser punishment for the punch thrown at Claudio Yacob in the draw against West Brom last weekend, but to no avail. While it may be to late for Spurs to catch Leicester City for the league title, Alli's absence has a huge impact on their how the club will fare in the final few weeks. In the six matches this season in which Alli did not start, the club only managed one win, as pointed out by staff writer Ben Dinnery. Mauricio Pochettino will have to call upon the likes of Heung-min Son, Nacer Chadli or Ryan Mason to fill the void in the attacking midfield, beginning this week with the derby against Chelsea. Alli can safely be dropped in all formats unless you own him in a keeper league.

Maurico Pochettino revealed after Tottenham's draw with West Bromwich Albion that Eric Dier is dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

Quoting the Spurs manager, "I knew that he was dizzy but we hope it is not a big deal". Any time without their midfield enforcer is a big deal for Tottenham, and while the club may be all but dead in the water for a title shot, they still want to close out strong and finish second in the table. Dier is also in contention to nail down a spot for the England XI in the upcoming Euros as he wraps up an impressive campaign. We should have an update on his status later in the week and he may be benefited by the fact that the club will not play again until Monday night against Chelsea.

Dele Alli could face a retrospect ban after he appeared to throw a punch at West Bromwich Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob.

It was a game in which Spurs had to win to keep any realistic hope of lifting the Premier League crown. But the Baggies frustrated Tottenham throughout a tense second forty-five and emotions began boil over. Referee Mike Jones missed the incident but television replays clearly show a coming together with Alli landing a blow to Yacob’s midriff before kicking out. If the player is found guilty of violent conduct, then Alli will face a three-match suspension ending his season prematurely and disappointingly.
Apr 26 - 4:48 AM

After a knee injury kept him sidelined for over four months, Clinton N'Jie is finally fully fit and available for selection this Monday night when Tottenham host West Brom.

N'Jie has only logged 166 minutes of pitch time on the season in league play for Spurs and 80 of those came in the lone start he made all the way back in Week 8 in a goalless draw with Liverpool. He is still searching for his first league goal. He never had much of a chance of getting regular playing time with the superior options Mauricio Pochettino has at his disposal, but he could have helped provide relief along the way for the likes of Harry Kane, who is pretty much forced to play 90 minutes every match because of the lack of alternative options. N'Jie is not on the fantasy radar in any format but perhaps he can get a bit of pitch time and further his development before the season is through.
