You can never say never in football.”Son likes Italy, the food and Italian people. It’s not easy to take him from Tottenham because he costs a lot but, one day, who knows?”2Of course, many will see the agent’s words as a cynical ploy to get a bumper new deal out of Tottenham, with the club in dire straits this term and manager Mauricio Pochettino under huge pressure.Spurs are set to lose Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela – all out of contract – in the summer.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneDanny Rose and Serge Aurier are also thought to want to leave the club.But midfielder Moussa Sissoko has just signed a new long-term deal.Latest Tottenham newsKETTY CATTiger King’s Joe Exotic ‘injected workers with tranquilisers meant for big cats’tearful victoryEamonn Holmes shares pride in wife Ruth Langsford after £33k charity TV winSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantine’IT’S AMAZING’My eggs have helped 3 women become mums — I’d love to meet the kids one day’HIPPY AT HEART’Breakfast radio host Lisa Snowdon reveals what gets HER up in the morningSon signed a five-year deal at Spurs in July 2018.He is believed to earn around £110,000-a-week.This Saturday’s Premier league sees Brighton take on Tottenham and West Ham v Crystal Palacelast_img
