The London Evening Standard has frustrated Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern as they revealed that Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke will reject a move to White Hart Lane.
It is believed that Spurs will have to meet Benteke’s £32.5m release clause and in the deal Emmanuel Adebayor will move to Villa Park.
But even if Daniel Levy can muster up the funds for the Belgian forward, it is believed the 24-year-old is not keen on a move to Spurs.
This surprises the regular punters in the Tavern, that a striker who is at a club that just managed to stay in the Premier League, is set to reject a side challenging for the top four.
The striker may fear that his position in the Euros in 2016 could be in doubt as he will be desperate to be selected for Belgium’s side!
