WTPS: Ledley no-go

Posted on 26 November 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).

Several papers carry Glenn's response to reports linking Leeds with a move for Ledley King.

It was suggested that David O'Leary is ready with a £10m bid to pair Ledley with Rio Ferdinand, but the message from Glenn is - nothing doing.

Glenn said: "David can treble that money but Ledley is not for sale. He is playing superbly. He is a good defender and the big plus is his use of the ball."

Glenn went a bit further in the Daily Star, saying: "We are defending very well as a team, but Ledley has been consistent all season.

"I know Sven Goran Eriksson and his scouting staff are watching Ledley very closely, and that they are pleased with his progression as we are."

The Mirror reports that Gus Poyet tried to order some food after coming round from his concussion on Saturday.

Hammers keeper David James is quoted as saying: "I made a save and Les whacked in the rebound. Then I realised how badly hurt Gus was. He was so out of it, it sounded like he was trying to order some food."

Les added: "The gloss was taken off it by what happened to Gus. He did not know where he was, he was away with the fairies. Then again, he is away with the fairies most of the time."

The report in the Express centres of the contribution of Steffen Freund.
