SSN - Swansea boss Garry Monk has confirmed his interest in Kyle Naughton, but insists the Tottenham full-back is just one of several possible summer transfer targets.

"We are looking at him (Naughton), but we're looking at a number of players. We're talking about a player who's with another club, so I don't want to disrespect anyone".

Can we afford to let him go now that we have Dier? I've never rated Naughton. .
I don't want us to make the same mistake as last season, having no REAL back up for LB when Rose got injured.

There is not enough information on Dier to show whether or not he can competently cover RB.

All in all, I'll keep faith in Poch, if he thinks we can do with selling Naughton then go for it, especially if the price is right because I agree with you in the sense that I have never rated Naughton.

Huge respect for Danny. Recognises the competition, but hopes it improves him as a player.

Also:

Chadli last season. I am certain he has the natural skill-set, strength and speed to make the left wing his own, especially with Poch's system of a rotating set of attacking midfielders.

Bentaleb last season. One of our best youth prospects. Deserves either a PL loan or a good run of games with us next season. I hope the latter.

Rose and Poch seem to have good chemistry already! good to see the players buying in :)
Agreed about Chadli, I honestly feel he is very underrated. One of many players I'm expecting to shine through this season.
"Sporting Clube de Portugal announces that during July, the club started negotiations with Eric Dier over the renewal of his contract.

"Unexpectedly, Sporting were confronted by the father and the official representative of the player with a transfer offer from Tottenham Hotspur, who referred to the current administration an agreement signed by previous directors and administrators, which obliged a sale of the player for a sum not exceeding €5m, or for Sporting to equal the proposed salary, which is impossible due to the wage structure in place, the ongoing financial restructuring and necessary sustainability of the club.

"Additionally, Sporting were informed that the player does not want to stay at the club even if the proposed salary was matched. And even if Sporting received a superior offer, whether in terms of a transfer bid or salary, from another club, the player would not accept it.

"Given the constraints outlined above, Sporting announces the sale of all economic rights for the player Eric Dier to Tottenham Hotspur, for the value of €5m net, without any future rights or guarantees."

Interesting

EDIT: nevermind, found one.

Spurs official - We have reached agreement with Italian side Genoa for the transfer of Yago Falque.
24 y/o and only made one appearance for us in the Prem.

Good luck to him at Genoa, just wasn't good enough to make the grade at Spurs.

For 4m, this coincides with the purchase of Eric Dier. Good business going on at Spurs, selling a player who is surplus to strengthen our weakest area.

Spurs are getting stronger!
That's a shame,thought he might have done well,but that is really good money for him,levy seems to be casually selling what we don't need,there could be more to
@WhiteHartRogue I don't think it is "casually" selling. Falque did get a run out in pre-season, which suggests that Poch has been assessing him and by playing him in some of friendlies shows that he wanted to make sure of his abilities. Ultimately this sale shows that Poch doesn't feel Falque makes it into our team, even as a sub.

Which is what I have liked most about this year's transfer window. Despite all the teams making quick purchases and getting their business done early, Poch has taken the time to evaluate our team fully before committing to any purchases and sales.

Agreed that there could be more to come (outgoings and incomings). In my opinion, we definitely have not finished our business in this transfer window.
I think Spurs will have a great season.

Good manager, strong team.

Liverpool vs Tottenham should be a cracker ;)
So @spursofficial has announced our signing of Dier (still subject to medical). This is a totally unexpected but excellent swoop for us! Dier is 6'3 and strong in the air, young and promising. Hopefully he'll be integrated into the squad in rotation during cup games, and be around 4th in rotation for CB.

This also indicates that Poche is confident in our first team choices...Unless there's another CB signing in the works, Jan/Kaboul/Vlad are our top 3 choices at center back.
I'm happy with the choices,think now is the time to let daws go,he's always been a favourite of line but I think he's gone downhill in the last few seasons,would be really sad to see him go though.

Btw I didn't realisse he's 6'3 didn't seem that tall by the pics
Is he better than Caulker?
Size wise they are just about the same - both 6'3 and about the same weight. Caulker is 2 years older and has EPL experience while Dier does not. Other than that I'm in the dark.

Considering we bought him at 4m and he's been a professional at Sporting since 2010, he's a very interesting prospect. Here's a guardian write up all about him and his move: http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/jul/31/eric-dier-tottenham-sporting-lisbon

I'm not sure what to expect, but I am excited!
I know they rated him highly at Sporting, he's seems like he's got the right attitude to become successful. Good to see Poch bringing in young players, I'm excited to see what this kid can do!
Of the general consensus that this kid is exciting purely because he is young, British and plied his trade abroad.

Through Isnotfish's guardian link, the bit I like is the fact that his parents moved back to England in 2010, but he remained in order to continue his football, and eventually got moved into the first team in 2013, and now with 2 (half) seasons abroad, he is moving back to the Premier League.

I have every faith in Poch to get the best out of this kid and make him a future England star. His head seems to be in the right place, and he takes his development seriously. Good attitude from the lad, hope he has a good skill set to match.
I'm finding it hard to try and think of an englshmen who has learned his trade abroad,it simply doesn't happen,think there might be a few out there but not from the likes of sporting to spurs
congrats on Dier he's a fantastic signing for you guys!
Is he? I have heard reports ranging from the new beckenbauer and he is a bit s**t(phrase of the week :P ) from a guy who is a Sporting supporter(I think)
Have no idea who he is
However he is, welcome to Spurs Eric Dier!
So the signing of Eric Dier looks to be happening. Good promising Centre Back. Thoughts?
If it is a Daws replacement then that will do I guess. He has looked good the couple times I have seen him play.

Verts
Kaboul
Vlad
Dier
Velj
Fryers
Capoue.

Its not bad depth at all
+1
If Kaboul stays fit he is going to a future legend for Spurs. Obvious leadership, very strong, very fast and his decision-making seems to have improved since his injury.
So is it only young good Englishmen that play in England that cost stupid money?lol

Anyway,don't think I could be in a position to comment on him,only heard of him today
It's official: https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/status/494931985979432960

http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/dier-move-agreed-310714/
Official subject to medical yay!

He's young, got loads of potential, english, and cost 4m. Noice. He's also decent enough to be 4th/5th for depth, so we don't have to rely on Senior Citizen Dawson.

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9401857/contract-news-tottenham-left-back-danny-rose-signs-new-five-year-deal

Not best pleased about this one as I don't think Rose makes the grade being 24 years old already. But hopefully Pochetino can get the best out of him yet, especially with the introduction of Ben Davies. Should do well competing together for that LB spot.
Good news. I think Rose is capable of being a very good left back and if he doesn't perform well the contract means we can get a decent chunk of cash for him.

Yeah I think it's good,hopefully we can finally get shot of Wootton now that we have 2 decent Lbs for the next possible 5 or 6 providing they can progress
We need to stop acting like players peak at 22. There is still obviously room for improvement and time for it as well. If he's 28 and not any better than fine but we all need to stop acting like 24 is peak level
+3
Ekotto
Agreed Frank, well said
My main concern was because I didn't think Rose would commit to playing second fiddle to Ben Davies, who was clearly brought in as a replacement. Something which didn't appear in my original editted post but nevermind.

As posted further above by Paddy, Rose seems perfectly happy to be competing with Ben Davies, understanding that he is no longer a guaranteed starter (which throws my argument out the window anyway). At the same time he has built a rapport with Poch. This I am all satisfied with and I am expecting to see good things from them both this season.
Everton have bought lukaku for 28 Mil,really good deal for then
Incredible.

I feel like we missed out big on this one.
We have more important areas to work on than attack. 28M would've been too much for us.
We were ready to spend that much on Schniederlin and J-Rod. All we *NEED* to sign is a strong option CB. Everything else is a bonus.
+1
Nah I wouldn't say we missed out,he does lack a bit for the very top level imo,but could become a major world star
Schneiderlin and J-rod would fit our system- but that's a whole other argument I'm not going to go into.
We spent 28m on a proven goal scoring striker last year who didn't play AVB's system and look how that has turned out. Doing the same with Lukaku would be silly, especially when we still got Adebayor on our books.

Good on Everton and good on Lukaku. They should both be doing well this season.
I would much rather pay for Lukaku than continue with Ade, given the option. His output is already excellent in his first two seasons in the EPL, and his skill/positioning can only improve with coaching. A soon-to-be-elite 21 year old vs an under achieving 29 year old feels worth the 28 mil to me - attacking talent doesn't become obtainable like that every day.

But this isn't fifa, perhaps Poch saw Lukaku not being ideal for his style of play and said don't bother. Also, I think that at least Kane and Soldado will thrive under Poch. I have hopes for Ade, but it's hard to teach him new tricks.
After last season's debacle, yet Adebayor's outstanding performances, are we still calling him "underachieving"??
It was totally awesome when he was scoring at an unsustainable rate, but when it caught up with him and we still needed goals we were caught in a lurch. Ade has only given us one season of reliable goals, and that was when he was on loan. I would love it if Poch sorts him out and he's a 20+ goal striker like all know he should be, but when has Ade ever looked up to the responsibility longer than 6 months?
That's the problem with Adebayor, we all know his faults, and feel he isn't worth the trouble sometimes. But it wasn't easy getting him to Spurs, and it is going to be even harder getting rid of him.

Just like the rest of the team, I'm hoping Adebayor gets a new chance with a new manager. On paper, Adebayor fits Poch's style completely. He moves around the midfield, he plays the ball, and only scores when he has got the perfect opportunity to score, i.e. he doesnt go for silly angles or try dribble his way into the goal. Surely this new passing system, with fluid midfielders is exactly what suits Adebayor best.

Our attacking department hasn't been strengthened in personnel so far this summer, but it has been strengthened with Poch coming in with a proper implemented system. Soldado will be able to get the quick play, and through balls/passes which he deserves in order to score goals. Enough said about Adebayor. We will definitely see a massive improvement on Lamela this season, and he'll begin to show us why we paid so much for him. The best of Eriksen is also yet to come.
