Interest in Richards over
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).
We have withdrawn our interest in Southampton centre-half Dean Richards.
Southampton have said that they will not take a penny less than £10 million for the player. We offered £4 million and were prepared to be flexible but the Saints were not.
A Spurs spokesman said: "Obviously, we are very disappointed."
