Gamst to Sign for Tottenham?

Gamst to Sign for Tottenham?

According to reports Blackburn Rovers winger Morten Gamst Pedersen is set to sign for Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window?

The Norwegian International, who has been consistently linked with a move to Spurs for the past year hasn't been in the best of form this season but has been starting to find some again in recent weeks.

Reports, allegedly from someone with "inside information" are said to have come from a source close to the player's agent. They said:

"Morten is unhappy playing for a relegation-threatened side. He wants to move on.

"Spurs are a big club and Morten is keen to join them."

Gamst has made no secret of his desire to one day move onto a bigger side, but these bigger sides he has spoken of have been Manchester United, Liverpool or Arsenal so with the greatest of respect to Spurs despite our current plight in the League would this really be as much of a move forward as he is eventually looking for?

A few weeks ago I would have almost gladly seen him go but with him coming back into form he is a player we need. With this said no player is bigger than anyone club and if the offer is right maybe it would be a good time to cash in? You can understand his frustration (if Gamst genuinely does feel the way the quotes are saying) but if he only wants to "sing when we're winning" then maybe it would be best for all concerned for him to move on as we only want players playing for the club that want to be here.

It's that time of year where rumours are ripe so this probably is nothing more than just that…

Meanwhile other reports are saying that Mark Hughes is keen to revive his interest in 40-year-old veteran Teddy Sheringham? Would he really get much more football at Ewood Park than he is getting at Upton Park though, is there room enough for two outfield veterans in our side!

MGP going to Spurs surely won't happen, not in January anyway although money can talk and as I say if the "rumours" on what he's meant to have said are true maybe it's best he did??? As for Sheringham could he offer much more creativity than that we already have in the shape of Tugay? I know he'd add that extra link between midfield and attack but I couldn't really see him playing much more than he is at West Ham? Maybe I'm wrong?!?!

maybe it is about time MGP moved to a big team and spurs are a big team. He could fill our problem left side problem and he is a real footballer rather than a long ball expert like that of Blackburn. Lets be honest, gone are the days Blackburn were a big team, they now set their site on survival rather than silerware!!!!!

even when Blackburn won the league we were a bigger team. I do like blackburn, and really rate MGP, he would make us a much better team by filling the only real weak spot we have in our squad/starting 11. we would have Lennon and him on either wing, with the creativity of Malbranque and Huddlestone in the centre... Berba and Defoe up front, it would be looking a lot better come Feb with him in or team!

Good player yet I don't think he's played that well this season in comparison to his previous ones in England. Hence, I believe this is made up and won't be happening. Spurs have enough midfielders as it is!

I think there are better options than MGP, hes got good technical abilities i.e shooting,crossing,set pieces, but in general play he isn't that effective, we need a left winger with pace, Quaresma !!

I agree with you Lennon25 - I think there are better options for us -I would have a punt on either Harry Kewell who is wasted in the Liverpool reserves or Huckerby who could easily add some width and flair - he should be playing in the premiership for sure

I've given up trying to argue against one of points FOLKESTONE YID makes; if you can't open your eyes to the fact that Rovers are more than just a "long ball" team why should I even try arguing against it...once again! Also believing that Spurs are a bigger club along the lines of United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool is what makes so many fans dislike Spurs, not that I'm neccessrily saying I'm one of them.

Huckerby?! Do me a favour!! Kewell?! He never plays because he is always injured, open your eyes. MGP is a good player and would be per for our left sided problem. He hasn't been playing well but Blackburn have been poor this season so no player is going to be outstanding. Bentley has been a good signing but players like this will always look better in a good side. No disrespect to Blackburn, they are struggling at the moment, but I believe that Spurs are a coupe of players away from being a regular top six side. I'm not saying we're going to be up there challenging but we just ha I would like to see him join.ve a couple of positions to fill before I think we will be consistent.

MPG doesn't have pace I'll agree here but to say you'd rather opt for Kewell (who is currently injured not in the reserves) or Huckerby instead of MGP surprises me, not that I'm unhappy as keeping him suits me.
