Blimey I'm bored. The only thing that gets me through the sad life of a close season is transfer gossip and because of the World Cup it has all but dried up!
Only snippet we have today is a report in The Mirror claiming that Spurs will drop their asking price to around £8million for hit man Robbie Keane.
I still say he is a shoe in for Villa.
The report says that the Spuds want to offload him and both Villa and Blues are interested in the The Republic of Ireland striker.
The report by James Nursey also repeats the link to Curtis Davies to Spurs. Sounds like a fairly easy swap then?!!?
Remember Tottenham re-bought Robbie from Liverpool for £12m in January 2009. I'm told we'd have grabbed him Jan 2010 but Spurs were unwilling to sell him to a close rival (which is more than understandable).
Reports are again saying that the following 'fringe' players are available for sale: Luke Young, Curtis Davies, Nigel Reo-Coker, Habib Beye, Steve Sidwell and Nicky Shorey.
So far we have:
