    I mean, if his reasoning is simply that Spurs are a great club for developing youth players, recently competed for the title and look a solid bet to remain in the CL in the near future, I'd fully understand it of course, though I do think in terms of youth development we're on a par.

    But if it was simply a question of geography I would think he seems to lack ambition. I guess the question is really whether we'd ever really know his true reasoning whichever club he ends up at.

    It's not a loophole. We haven't been banned from signing players to professional contracts. We can sign anyone we want to a professional contract as long as they are old enough to do so. We can also sign players to youth contracts providing the haven't been anywhere close to the English leagues in the 18 months before. It's a very limited group we are banned from signing.

    You're all bastards. There's a special place in hell for you and ZB. Next to the lawyers, see you there.

    Didn't he say Spurs are looking like the preferred destination as oppose to LFC's interest has ended? Don't have a times sub so can't check but that was the headline I think...

    If Sessegnon spurns us and Leicester decides not to sell Chilwell then we do or would we go for?

    Going by current links it could well be Andy Robertson from Hull.

    Christ - I'd prefer a proper left back signing. Milner looked goosed at the end of last season, to be fair to Robertson I don't know if he's any good but do I want to be going into a crucial fixture with Milner injured and him as left back - absolutely not.

    It's not ideal, though there still seems to be a bit of chat about Mendy of Monaco.

    There's something amusingly petty about how we're often said to have "ended our interest" moments before news that a player has signed for another club.

    Yeah Robertson is very average and while I would have taken him IF we got Sessegnon as understudy but just Robertson would be terrible. He's not a special talent by any means nor is he already a good player so I rather Tierney from Celtic or just compete with the big boys for Mendy.

    Come on - if we couldn't get a 16 year old teenager while competing against 1 club (who came to the party very late i think), how are we going to sign Mendy, a guy coveted by so many top clubs.

    Thats Brand and Sess out of the list. In a week or 2, we will hear that we have lost interest in Vvd and Keita too.
    Then most of the last few months wish list of TIA posters can go to the bin.

    It's not a competition, but it's annoying when a person continues to perpetuate an inaccuracy, thus confusing the discussion, when the relevant and accurate information is freely available (directly given to him).

    Would have really liked, hope its not a case of Dele Alli 2.0 where we don't want go give him the wages hes after.

    Potentially great signing for Spurs, I just hope we have someone as good or better lined up (Mendy...!).

    If Paul Joyce has, in fact, stated this, why are we not provided with a link to either a.) Paul Joyce's twitter account stating such or b.) an article written by Paul Joyce stating such?

    I really do not understand the insistence of football fans to prop up these ridiculous twitter accounts that just churn out uncited excerpts of other people's work. A particular favourite of mine is whenever one of these newsspambots just puts [Newspaper Source] in brackets at the end of the tweet rather than simply attaching a link.

    Had a lot of faith in our ability to attract, Van Dijk and Sessegnon just yesterday and today the stupid Twitterverse are now saying neither are likely. :-( I pray that they have no clue what is going on because I struggle to find another CB as complete as VVD and a LB which as much potential as Sessegnon. How many 16yrs kids do so well in the Championship that they make the team of the year?
    For both of them we are the best choice for them. Chelsea play 3 at the back which I'm assuming isn't very comfortable for VVD plus they already have a settled backline which would make breaking into it a tough order. While we play a back 4 and are seeking a first choice CB to partner Matip.
    Sessegnon too would likely see more games with us than with Spurs and most of the top 6 clubs. Its a weird choice to me not beneficial to their development IMO.

    Probably because Joyce writes for The Times and his articles are behind a pay-wall. It's not on his Twitter timeline.

    https://twitter.com/_pauljoyce

    There is an article here, but I'm not paying to read it:

    Even without paying at least I can see enough of the article to support the claim. Rather than taking "DaveOCKOP"'s (?) word for it.

    His account won't tweet things as his stories are behind a paywall. So, "propping up ridiculous twitter accounts" is more, relying on them to pay their subs so I can read news in 140 characters...Quite simple really, it's not bollocks - every LFC fan account has tweeted it so...you're welcome, for the information.

    Ah...the entire article:

    Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as favourites to sign Ryan Sessegnon, the Fulham teenager. Sessegnon, who can operate at left back or further forward, can sign his first professional contract having recently turned 17 — but he has yet to put pen to paper. Tottenham finished the season with Ben Davies at left back after Danny Rose suffered a knee injury.

    It was a really long one.

    Really, I just see it saying that Spurs remain favourites to sign him, which we knew days ago. I couldn't see any mention in the pre-paywall text about us dropping interest in signing him.

    Fair enough. And apologies to @SoueysTash, I didn't mean it as a criticism of you per se. Probably just a personal bugbear I need to get over.

    Carry on.

    Nay problemo. It's certainly worth saying that there's a lot of charlatans in Twitter-land, or those who accidentally spread false information through being keen to share good news first, and so it's always worth checking the source or origin of a rumour before putting too much faith in it.
