Bournemouth star plays down Tottenham link

Bournemouth’s Josh King has played down speculation linking him with a possible move to Tottenham.

The Daily Mirror declared this week that the Norway forward “has fired himself onto Spurs’ radar” with his 12 Premier League goals this season.

Norwegian publication Nettavisen quoted King as saying: “This is the first time I’ve heard of this. I’m happy to be recognised, but I’m only focusing on the next three games.”

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say Toby Alderweireld wants more than £100,000 a week to sign a new contract at Tottenham.

The defender’s current wages are reported to be around £50,000 a week and the Mail say he wants parity with Spurs striker Harry Kane, who earns a reported £110,000 a week.

The newspaper also claims that Tottenham are reluctant to give Alderweireld such a large pay increase and that this “is proving a problem.”

But the Mail also reports that “talks between both parties are ongoing with Spurs hopeful of reaching an agreement.”
