I guess that's that then...
I would assume it is pretty safe to say that Peter Crouch will be signing for Spurs this summer, what with Jamie's Dad confirming to sky sports news that he is a player he could be interested in: 'I like Peter. I've signed him several times and he's a top player.
'He's a player that we could be interested in, but we'll have to wait and see.
'Portsmouth obviously want to sell him now, they've accepted offers for him, so if they want to sell him, we'd be interested.'
I think he knows as well as we do, there is not a 'want to sell' about it, we have accepted offers so clearly 'we will sell' Crouch and with an interest, albeit it not 'concrete' interest confirmed I cannot see the big man going anywhere else apart from Spurs now to be honest...
There were rumours of a 'fall-out' between Crouch and Jermaine Defoe before he 'skulked off' back to Spurs but the little man would not be against re-uniting this pairing: 'I spoke to 'Crouchy' over the summer, while we were on England duty. I've played with him for several years, at Under 21 and now senior level.
So, Jamie's Dad got one of his own players to 'tap up' the striker then...
'It's down to Crouchy, obviously he's going to go where he's going to play.
'If he wants to come here it's only going to help the team.'
In all honesty if I had to pick I would really rather he did not go to Spurs - not that it makes much difference where he goes, but then again I would rather he did not go at all, but there you go! He is off, this is not going to change, if it is to Spurs so be it I guess, what can you do...
