Tottenham fans should ignore transfer speculation – club in good hands

The summer transfer window is not even open yet and already the speculation over the future of a host of Tottenham Hotspur players is filling column inches in newspapers and being regurgitated on countless websites.

The main Spurs players being touted with a possible summer exit are Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, with the latter’s recent comments in an interview on BBC Radio Five Live not exactly filling the club’s fans will much confidence of his commitment to the cause.

There are a number of truths among all the speculation and rumours that Tottenham fans should remember between now and August 31.

Kyle Walker is replaceable and his sale could be best for all parties.

The England international right-back’s exit has been on the cards for some time and with Manchester City circling, it looks likely that the defender will leave.

While Tottenham fans do not want any first-team players to leave, Walker looks like he has had his head turned and as such it may serve the club’s interests to sell him for maximum financial gain.

With Kieran Trippier a more-than able replacement, the Spurs starting XI would not be weakened by the full-back leaving – even if most would prefer him to stay.

Eric Dier is going nowhere. Danny Rose won’t leave if Tottenham don’t want to sell.

Reports linking Eric Dier with a move to Manchester United should be taken with a pinch of salt, with the versatile star key in Mauricio Pochettino’s system and not going anywhere this summer.

Rose’s comments were not confidence-inspiring, but with the left-back signing a long-term contract recently Tottenham are in a position of power.

We need to get used to the rumours.

Speculation will continue but it should actually be looked at as a positive thing.

If Tottenham’s players were not being linked with English and European rivals there would be something wrong – the rumours are a consequence of another amazing season at White Hart Lane.

The fact of the matter remains that plenty of massive teams would love to have the ability, togetherness and discipline that Spurs possess – but in Pochettino and Daniel Levy the club are in good hands.
