Tottenham no intention of selling striker


Tottenham have no intentions of selling Roberto Soldado despite speculations in the press.

The forward, who arrived at Tottenham last summer for a fee of £26m, has endured something of a tough first year in the Premier League.

Scoring only two goals from open play in the league, the former Valencia man has a total of 11 goals in all competitions as well as five assists.

Under contract until 2017, it had been suggested in the press that Tottenham could look to sell the misfiring striker in order to recoup some of the large transfer fee they outlaid on bringing him in from Spain, however it seems there is no basis to any of these claims.

Tottenham seem more than happy to allow Soldado time to settle in to a new club, country and league, expecting him to contribute significantly more next season.

Fellow striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, spoke to the press after the defeat against West Ham and he has high hopes for next season, hoping that they will be able to improve on this year.

He said.

“For us as a club and a team of players, yes, we’re all disappointed. Now we will go away on holiday, refresh our bodies, and hopefully next season will be better.

“The past three or four months have not been that bad, with a lot of positives to take, and we have to learn from our mistakes and I think we can do better than this season.”
