Match reports from Saturday's win at Wolves plus Jamie Redknapp tells the People he's happy with his new deal and the the Star link us with Martin O'Neill again. Many pundits say Jermain Defoe must go to Euro 2004 and the Observer says David Pleat will lose out in a shake up.

The tabloids take the angle of Paul Robinson taking a wage cut to join us while David Pleat talks about the progress of our youngsters.

All the papers report on the capture of Robinson, subject to medical, and say that James Milner rejected a switch to the Lane. The Express suggest that the future of David Pleat is uncertain and his role at the club could change.

All the papers go with news that we are in negotiations with Leeds over the purchase of Paul Robinson and the release of six players including Christian Ziege, Gus Poyet and Darren Anderton.

The Star links Claudio Ranieri to the manager's post.

No Spurs news today.

Match reports from Saturday's 1-0 win against Rovers. Most papers refer to Daniel Levy's notes from the match programme - read them here - and quote Jamie Redknapp, who spoke after the game, admitting the players have to take a share of the blame for our season. Good reports on Jermain Defoe.
