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 thatů
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!
