Sky Sports is reporting today that Tottenham Hotspur do not want to part with their England International winger, Aaron Lennon this summer.
Aaron Lennon – Spurs don’t want to sell
Recent reports had indicated that Kevin Keegan and Newcastle may be interested in the 21 year-old, who played in 47 of the Spurs’ 57 games last season.
Lennon, not surprisingly, has also been mentioned as a possible player in a part exchange with Blackburn Rovers midfielder, David Bentley, who Spurs have been strongly linked with during the summer.
It seems like Spurs’ intentions with Lennon exactly mirror those of Newcastle with our own James Milner, who is still being linked with a potential move to Aston Villa.
The clubs don’t want to sell, unless a good offer comes in, but the offer would need to be extra special in both cases, for the clubs to consider selling.
Sky Sports is saying that the 21-year-old Leeds-born player is definitely in their Spanish manager Juande Ramos’ plans, for the coming season.
Ramos is said not to be unwilling to let Lennon go, as either part exchange bait, or inÂ straight cash transfer.Â Certainly Spurs don’t seem to be short of transfer cash this summer.
Lennon is under contract at Tottenham until 2012, and has already made almost 120 appearances for the club, since joining them from his home town team Leeds United in 2005.
The youngster will be part of the Spurs squad that heads out to sunny Spain, for a pre-season training camp later this month.
We think Lennon would be a great buy for Newcastle, if only we could him for around Â£8M.
But that probably will not happen.
