Glenn's Sol latest

Posted on 7 May 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).

Glenn Hoddle says contract talks with Sol Campbell are moving positively.

Skipper and defensive kingpin Sol is now a free agent under the terms of the Bosman ruling.

He has been linked with just about every major European club including Real Madrid, Lazio, Juventus and Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Chelsea in the Premiership and, most recently, with a whopping £100,000-per-week move to Barcelona.

But boss Glenn is hoping to persuade the big man to stay.

He revealed: “Sol’s situation is progressing in a similar way to how we’re trying to bring new people into the club.

“There is dialogue and as long as there is dialogue, there is hope. I think things moving in a positive way and progressing.

“Sol has two very bad ankle ligament injuries to deal with at the moment.

“He’s going to have some time off and rest. That is the best thing for him and he can then get his mind together, get his thoughts together and decide what his future is.

“I certainly hope and feel it can be with Tottenham Hotspur.”

Asked if he'd put extra pressure on Sol to re-sign, Glenn responded: “We don’t put people under pressure. What you do is talk, have dialogue and that as been done.”
