Tottenham’s swoop for highly-rated striker collapses

dembele1234The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern may just have to deal with one Moussa Dembele rather than two after hearing reports that the deal looks likely to collapse.

According to The Guardian, Fulham have angrily called off the £6m arrangement with Tottenham after Spurs were refusing to allow the player to return to Fulham on loan after completing his permanent move.

Fulham are precariously hovering above the relegation zone in the Championship and aren’t willing to lose one of their biggest goal threats straight away.

The proposed arrangement with Spurs along with a £6m deal was that Spurs would allow Dembele to return to Fulham for the rest of the season but Spurs aren’t willing to cooperate.

The 19-year-old underwent a medical at Tottenham on Saturday and the transaction looked all to be completed.

However, Tottenham have continued to push for the player to join them straight away until the point that it could be a certain deal-breaker.

There is understood to be precious little chance of the deal being revived, especially with the transfer deadline looming ever closer later on today.
