Phil Jones. Fabinho and Phil Jones. These are the developing stories of what was a miserable deadline day, and what may now be an exciting one.
According to a live blog on the Telegraph, the Mail are reporting (we know, it is all a bit he said she said) that Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League have enquired as to the possibility of bringing the out-of-favour Jones to White Hart Lane. Per the Telegraph: “The Football Insider have followed this up with a story claiming Spurs will make a firm offer for the defender in the final hours of the window”.
We must admit, we have no idea what The Football Insider is, and even less of an idea of whether we can believe it. But rather intriguingly, it follows on from this earlier tweet from Sky Sports’ man in Enfield, which definitely seems to suggest Daniel Levy’s still got something up his sleevies:
Can't rule out more at this stage. Told the chairman + co are still busy working away at it... https://t.co/NGNQiIsfLW— Lyall Thomas (@SkySportsLyall) August 31, 2016
Let the fun commence!
