Spurs bid rejected?

Filed: Friday, 23rd January 2009

Scott Duxbury's resolve not to sell players to Tottenham is being tested less than 48 hours after he made the statement, according to reports this morning.

Duxbury, speaking via the Independent's Jason Burt earlier this week insisted that, given a preference, he would no longer allow United players to join Tottenham.

But according to this morning's Daily Star, that staement is being put to the test already as Spurs have recently lodged an 8million bid for the former Chelsea striker.

26-year-old Cole is the Premier League's in-form striker at present, having scored a goal in each of his last five games. Tottenham are thought to have moved for Cole at the start of January but, according to the story, are ready to revive their interest.

Cole, who was signed by Alan Pardew from Chelsea for 2million back in 2007 was recently awarded a new five-year-contract. Since signing the new deal he has found prolific form, and has now scored nine goals this season - just six shy of the target he set himself back in August.

''I agree with Dirk. Mr 'can't keep it shut' Redknapp was reported to the FA before about this. Unsettling players like this is unfair only cos he's in the relegation battle, ha ha sucker.''

''i know he tries hard but I just dont think he is good enough. Yes he has improved somewhat, but 8million quid for him?! I say take it and run quickly, surely we can get a better forward with that sort of money?''

''It would be intersting to see how the press and the FA would react if Zola had behaved the same way as Redknapp. I thought it was illegal to tap up and unsettle players? It seems Spurs are hell bent (no pun intended) on doing this to not just us but other teams.''

''They picked the player Zola and Clarke are least likely to sell to ANYONE for ANY PRICE. I notice how a lot of the stories neglect to mention Duxbury's comments but that's the media - they'll use what they need and ignore any other information that says something to the contrary.

Absolutely no chance of this happening, since they've both arrived Coley's been something of a project for them - they knew his potential and stood by him... not simply to increase his value. I've lost so much respect for old Harry... shame.

COLEY FOR ENGLAND! Haha (how realistic would that have been a year ago!?.. Fantastic! HOTY)''
