Talented Tottenham defender to turn his back on White Hart Lane

Vlad ChirichesSome Tottenham supporting punters necking down a few pints here in the Transfer Tavern today are eagerly listening in on reports flying in from Sky Sports that Romanian International, Vlad Chiriches, will be making a switch to Italian giants Napoli in the very near future.

Since arriving for £8.5 million from Steaua Bucharest in the summer of 2013, the central defender has always struggled to hold down a regular first team place.

With the recent arrival of Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer respectively in this window, long term clubman Younes Kaboul was hastily deemed surplus to requirements by Mauricio Pochettino and it now looks like Chiriches will suffer a similar fate and make a £4.5 million move to Serie A.

After making just eight appearances last term he will hardly be a player missed too sorely by the club, and a Spurs fan over by the pool table had this to say “I won’t miss him, I mean, I’ve barely ever noticed him at the club – lets cut our losses and get that wage bill down.”

What do you think Tottenham Fans? Agree with the punter in the Pub? Or are you sad to see him leaving? Let us know below!
