Scott Brown to Spurs for 10 million?


Recommended Posts

By Graeme Bryce, 15/08/2009

SPURS manager Harry Redknapp is lining up a sensational £10million bid to take Scott Brown to White Hart Lane.

The Tottenham manager sent his spies to Pittodrie yesterday to run the rule over the 24-year-old Scotland midfielder.

It's also understood he has already sounded out Tony Mowbray about Brown's availability and will be at Celtic Park on Tuesday for the Hoops' European Champions League clash with Arsenal. Ironically Brown only played 40 minutes of the second half after replacing the injured Glenn Loovens, who is now a major doubt for Tuesday.

Sport of the World understands Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill has targeted Spurs' midfielder Jermaine Jenas and is ready to launch a late bid land him. If the London club's asking price is met, Redknapp wants a ready made replacement for Jenas and sees last season's SPFA Player of the Year Brown as the ideal candidate to add bite to his midfield.

Brown cost Celtic £4.4million from Hibs two years ago but the Parkhead club would find it hard to refuse a whopping bid from the Premiership giants.

Mowbray was unaware of Redknapp's visit to Pittodrie but he admitted there has been interest from the Premiership and abroad in right-back Andreas Hinkel.


Is the NOTW mind you.

SPURS are back in the hunt for Scott Brown and could splash £11million to land the Celtic star.

White Hart Lane boss Harry Redknapp is a long-time admirer of the talented midfielder.

And he could make his move this week if he offloads Jermaine Jenas to Aston Villa in a megabucks deal.

Brown came on as a secondhalf sub in yesterday's 3-1 opening-day win over Aberdeen. Redknapp recently made contact with Celtic who quoted a price of £14m for Brown.

That's the same sum Spurs paid to land Wilson Palacios from Wigan last season. Sunderland boss Steve Bruce was told the same fee when he inquired about Scott - and instead spent £7m to sign Lee Cattermole from Wigan. Redknapp will watch Brown in action against Arsenal on Tuesday.

If the Gunners send them spinning out of the Champions League Celtic may be more inclined to part with one of their star assets.

The Hoops bought the Scotland star for £4.4m from Hibs two years ago and stand to make a massive profit that would boost Tony Mowbray's kitty for new players.

Mowbray is a huge fan of Brown and nurtured himwhen he was gaffer at Easter Road. But he wants more height in his midfield to defend and attack at set-pieces.

Massimo Donati partnered Landry N'Guemo in the centre of the park in yesterday's victory over Dons but question marks remain if he is the long-term answer.

Pretty obvious what's going on here. Celtic are looking to offload Brown and are putting a few feelers out, using their favourite 'journalist' Guidi. Ronnie (Crespo) Cully must have been busy.

I remember Mowbrow saying Broon doesn't quite fit into the system they were playing whle he was out injured

maybe they are calculating for going out of the CL ...10mill or more for Broon sorts it for them

he is never worth that though....ridiculous and they may get 2 or more for Hinkel.....another joke

Scot Brown oozes creativity and skill as well as graft. He is the best player in Scotland by a country mile & is just much more the complete, all-round midfielder when compared to Barry. The only thing I would say is that Scott is very much a CM whereas Barry can do jobs on the left also

Appartantly hes a real fighter and hard nut

I don't see Brown as a gamble at all, he is a quality CM who I actually believe is a better player than Gareth Barry,

scott brown would play along side palacios hes better quality than zokora,hodd,jenas great signing if we get him

oh dear, poor Spurs :lol:

£10m, £11m....what a load of pish. For that sort of money, you can get a player who can run, tackle, pass, dictate a game, score goals and chip in with assists!

I'd love to know the real value of Steven Davis, a player who is far superior in every aspect, bar aggression to Scott Brown.

Last season, Davis was so much more influential; he scored more goals, made more tackles, completed more passes, more assists....he's also proven at SPL, Premiership, International and European level.
