Daz follows Sol's lead

Posted on 3 January 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Darren Anderton has again indicated that he sees his future at Spurs — days after Sol Campbell went public with his intention to remain at the club.

Both players’ contracts expire and the end of the season and the duo are currently free to talk to European clubs.

Campbell’s pledge to stay met with a cautious response from boss George Graham when he was quizzed following the victory over Newcastle.

"When I read it in the papers it doesn’t really excite me," explained George. "I haven’t heard it from him. I think I’d be more excited if I heard it person to person rather than in the papers."

However, Anderton confirmed: "I know that because my contract is up in the summer I could talk to foreign clubs now, but I would rather stay at Spurs.

"I'm not just saying I want to stay, I really do want to. I feel I am part of the family here."

Anderton told the official Spurs website back in December that he saw his future at the Lane, and the London Evening Standard has now reported that his agent had a meeting with David Pleat just before Christmas.

"Although no offer was made at the meeting, Spurs asked if I wanted to stay at the club and I made it clear to them through my agent that I did. I will wait and see what offer they come up with and I imagine they will do that soon now that we have finished with the Christmas and New Year fixture programme.

"If a European club came in for me tomorrow I would wait to see what Spurs had to offer me first before I made any decision."

Campbell added: "I have put my cards on the table and it all depends on what the new owners want when they come in. They know where I am."
