It seems like Tottenham Hotspur waited until this very day to give us all sorts of information on possible transfer news today, because there is a bunch of it to report. While we all argue until the inevitable heat death of the universe about Kyle Walker, how about some good news? We could all use it!
A few hours ago, Spurs started a training session at Hotspur Way ahead of their preseason tour that begins next week in the United States. Lo and behold, look who was spotted coming out with the keepers!
I spy one Pau Lopez walking out with Michel Vorm for training!
Lopez, if you’ll remember, spent last season on loan in north London and primarily played in PL2 with the reserves. All reports were that Pochettino was quite high on the Spanish U-21 International but there was a disagreement between Spurs and Espanyol as to what the transfer fee should be.
Full disclosure, we have not heard anything about an official transfer. This could be a N’Koudou situation (oh dear god please no) where Espanyol allow him to train with Spurs while that final fee is being negotiated.
If you want to see the full video, you’ll have to download Snapchat and go through Spurs’ videos. It’s from today but it’s nothing more than a few second clip of the players walking out. Either way, it looks as though Lopez may be staying permanently with Tottenham after all.
EDIT: Oopsie-doopsie! Turns out that’s not Pau at all. We’ve been reliably informed by people who pay closer attention to the youth teams than we do that the people in that photo are Michel Vorm, and youth teamers Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman. Sorry about that!
