Tottenham Hotspur ace set to join Premier League club in £5 million deal?

fazio4It’s been a slow start to the Premier League season for both West Brom and Tottenham, with two points and two goals between the two sides from the opening two matches of the season.

And here in the Football Transfer Tavern our landlord has a story from the Telegraph on the futures of two defenders, with the Baggies reportedly having made a £5million bid for Spurs Federico Fazio.

That leaves question marks over the future of Baggies centre back Joleon Lescott, a player who has previously been linked with a switch to Aston Villa.

Tony Pulis is understood to have already agreed a £5million deal with Tottenham from the Argentine, despite the fact Spurs only signed him from Sevilla for £8 million last summer.

Fazio is keen on a move to the Hawthorns and the opportunity of regular first team football, so personal terms are not expected to be an issue.

The arrival of the 28-year-old is expected to increase speculation surrounding the future of Lescott, who was dropped for the Baggies goalless draw with Watford at the weekend.

Our resident Baggies fans here in the Transfer Tavern are not particularly enlightened by this news, with many of them not being very impressed with Fazio’s displays during his time at Spurs!

West Brom fans, is Fazio for Lescott a good swap? Let us know your thoughts below!
