Amongst the Tottenham Hotspur fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern, one name in particular has constantly been discussed as a potential summer target.
The bar-stool-experts who frequent in their droves have persistently touted Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha as a man who’d certainly improve the options currently available to Mauricio Pochettino.
Indeed, as recently as two days ago, Spurs were reportedly weighing up a £30m move for the 24-year-old. So, confirmation on Palace’s official website today that the former Manchester United man had penned a long-term new deal in south London has come as a blow to our north London locals.
The Ivory Coast international had been in scintillating form for the Eagles in the campaign just gone, notching seven goals and registering nine assists in red and blue.
Now, he’s officially been rewarded with a five-year contract extension, much to the dismay of the Tottenham fans crowded around one section of our world famous bar.
