Southampton have had a bid for Andros Townsend rejected by Tottenham, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports are reporting that Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has identified Townsend as a potential replacement for his England colleague Adam Lallana, but Spurs have dismissed an initial offer of £10million. Townsend made his first appearance for Spurs since a serious injury last season, coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes at West Ham on Saturday, and he impressed with some direct running and powerful shots at goal. If Southampton want to sign the winger they will need to up their offer, but Sky sources are suggesting Townsend would want to stay at White Hart Lane even if a bid was accepted by his current club.

Hugo Lloris showed his very best form to help keep Tottenham in the game before their later winner at West Ham.

When on form Lloris is one of the best goalkeeper's in Europe, and he showed that on Saturday. The Frenchman made four saves, including one world class stop to deny Stewart Downing, ensuring Spurs kept a clean which gave them the platform to win the game thanks to Eric Dier's late winner. Lloris returned 18 points in the Yahoo game and has one of the best fixtures at home to QPR in Week 2, so he'll be worth considering for your fantasy team.

Kyle Naughton was sent off within 30 minutes of Tottenham's match against West Ham.

Naughton was sent off for handling the ball inside the area, giving away a penalty. The defender's arms were raised so the penalty decision was fair, but the red card was harsh and there is a chance Tottenham will appeal. Spurs went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a late goal by Eric Dier.

Eric Dier was the hero for Tottenham as they left it late to beat West Ham 1-0 at Upton Park.

Why exactly Dier was in the centre forward position in the 93rd minute is a question only he can answer, but the defender rounded the keeper and slotted the ball home to complete an excellent debut and seal three point for Tottenham. Spurs had been reduced to ten-men after just 29 minute when Kyle Naughton was harshly sent off for handball in the box, but Mark Noble missed the penalty, and West Ham were never able to turn their advantage in to a goal. Referee Chris Foy evened things up by sending off James Collins for a second yellow card with 25 minutes to go, and the game then went end-to-end. Hugo Lloris and Adrian both made key saves before Dier won the match to give Mauricio Pochettino the perfect start.

Last season was a poor one for Erik Lamela, but he could prove a bargain this season as detailed by Nik Argiropoulos in this week's player picks column.

Branded a £30million flop last season, Lamela only featured in six Premier League games due to poor form and injury, but is now fit and has stated he is enjoying working under fellow Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino. Two man-of-the-match performances and three goals in pre-season, the winger is looking quick, sharp and confident, creating chances and shooting plenty. At a price of less than £3million in the Yahoo fantasy game he should be under consideration for your squad.

'tis the season for players to sign new five year deals with their existing clubs and Harry Kane has pledged his future to Spurs in the same way Kompany and Silva have at City.

OK, maybe it isn't exactly the same since Silva and Kompany are bedrock members of a squad that has won two of the past three Premier League titles and Kane is at the fringes of the Spurs strikeforce. Still, with Spurs thin at forward and rumors swirling about Kane potentially leaving, the new contract will provide some much-needed stability for the club as it looks to add as the transfer deadline approaches.
Aug 14 - 11:17 AM

With a large roster full of players he didn't choose word has leaked out that Mauricio Pochettino is willing to sell as many as 11 (yes, ELEVEN) players before the transfer deadline.

Surely not all eleven player from among Michael Dawson, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Kyle Naughton, Nacer Chadli, Sandro, Etienne Capoue, Mousa Dembele, Andros Townsend, Aaron Lennon, Roberto Soldado and Vlad Chiriches are likely to leave it certainly sends a message to teams interested in deadline deals for any of them. Assuming he can facilitate at least a partial clear out of those names, Pochettino hopes to bring in Loic Remy, Memphis Dupay, Morgan Scnheiderlin, Toby Alderweireld, and Mateo Musacchio to reshape the squad to his liking. That's a lot of moves in 18 days.

Kyle Walker is expected to miss the start of the new British Premier League season as he continues his recovery from an on-going groin issue.

Kyle Walker has seen a groin problem not only curtail his season back in March but also denied the defender a place at the World Cup. His fleeting 45 minute cameo against Toronto FC in July has been his last action since Mauricio Pochettino took over. Kyle Walker has trained sporadically with the first team throughout preseason and there seems to be little or no indication of when the full-back may return to first team duties.

Tottenham wrap up their preseason with a 2-1 win over FC Schalke, thanks to goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.

Mauricio Pochettino handed Emmanuel Adebayor the start, but both he and Soldado both logged 45 minutes of pitch time, with the Spaniard coming on to begin the second half. Tottenham's attack looked fluid, as Christian Eriksen was given the cental role in midfield and Lamela out wide. Eric Dier was handed a start at center back and looked comfortable in his new surroundings. There should be plenty of fantasy assets to go around from Spurs this season, perhaps none with more value than whoever emerges as the preferred striker. Currently, it is advantage Adebayor.

Goal.com is reporting that Spurs are closing in on a £3.5million move for USA international DeAndre Yedlin.

A move for Yedlin would an odd one for Spurs as they have a similar player in England man Kyle Walker who is 24 and theoretically entering his prime. Yedlin made a great impression in limited playing time at the World Cup and was highly rated by scouts based on his strong year and a half in Major League Soccer. That Spurs and others would be interested in general is no surprise. The fit between player and club does seem less likely given Walter's presence blocking Yedlin from a starting spot once he is ready to compete for it.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Spurs have had a £10million offer accepted for Dutch international Memphis Dupay with Nacer Chadli going in the opposite direction as part of the fee as well.

Memphis Dupay was one of the breakout stars of the World Cup as the young midfielder showed his quality alongside established veterans like Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben. Since Holland's first match in Brazil the rumor mill has been working overtime speculating about a move to the Premier League with first Manchester United and now Spurs the favorites for his signature. If a swap deal for Dupay and Chadli is consummated it will represent a solid upgrade for Spurs as Chadli wasn't particularly impressive in his first season in England.

Tottenham have completed the signing of Sporting Lisbon defender Eric Dier.

Dier was born in England but moved to Portugal at 10 years of age and has stayed in Lisbon since joining the club's academy as a teenager. The defender has represented England at Under-21 level, can play at centre-back, right-back or defensive midfield and joins Tottenham on a five year deal for a £4million fee. His arrival could push Michael Dawson closer to the exit door, with a move to Hull remaining a possibility.

Tottenham beat Celtic 6-1 in a pre-season friendly in Helsinki.

So Spurs continue their good pre-season form with a thumping win over a depleted Celtic side. The goals came from Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado, Lewis Holtby, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, before Adebayor's scored the sixth goal from the penalty spot on his first appearance since recovering from malaria last month.

Swansea boss Garry Monk has confirmed his interest in Tottenham's Kyle Naughton.

Just to keep the Swansea and Tottenham merry-go-round swinging, we have the possibility of Naughton moving to the Liberty Stadium. With Ben Davies and Danny Rose available at left-back, and with new signing Eric Dier capable of covering for Kyle Walker at right-back, the time may be right for Naughton to consider moving on, with Tottenham unlikely to stand in his way.

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Rose was expected to leave the club after Ben Davies' arrival from Swansea last month, but this new contract suggests the two left-backs will be competing with each other for a starting spot. Rose, who has reportedly impressed new manager Mauricio Pochettino during pre-season, can also play as a winger.
