Gallas To Spurs


Recommended Posts

Another step down for the greasy little bar steward.

Former Arsenal captain William Gallas is due for a medical with Tottenham on Friday, skysports.com understands.

Harry Redknapp has already confirmed his admiration for the 33-year-old, who left Arsenal when his contract expired at the Emirates at the end of last season.

Italian giants Juventus and Greek side Panathinaikos are amongst a number of continental clubs to hold talks with the former Chelsea star.

But now it appears that Spurs could be ready to pounce for Gallas and talks are believed to be at an advanced stage.

Skysports.com understands that Gallas is due to have a medical on Friday, with a view to completing a move to White Hart Lane over the weekend.

Redknapp confirms Gallas deal

Spurs boss says move for defender was 'no-brainer'

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that William Gallas is set to join the club and described the move as a 'no-brainer'.

The French defender was released by Arsenal at the end of last season and is now on the brink of joining the Gunners' arch North London rivals.

Gallas, 33, will undergo a medical at White Hart Lane on Friday afternoon ahead of moving on a one-year contract.

Redknapp has opted to go for the France international to bolster his options in central defence, with Jonathan Woodgate still out with a long-term groin injury and Ledley King plagued with knee problems.

The Spurs boss admits he did not have to think too hard about securing the services of the former Chelsea man, who he confirmed is on the verge of completing his switch.

"He's a no-brainer on a free transfer," said Redknapp.

The centre-back's wage demands - reportedly £80,000 per week - were thought to have been behind his departure from the Emirates Stadium, as manager Arsene Wenger was not prepared to break the bank to keep him.

Redknapp denies that Gallas' wage requirements at Tottenham are beyond reasonable and says he will not be on a ridiculous salary.

He added: "He's never asked for big money here.

"The chairman's agreed a one-year contract with him and the wages are more than reasonable."

One of the most predictable transfers ever. Aging vet, was once good, available for free, zero loyalty to rival club. Of course Spurs were going to get him.

Im not even annoyed by it, I just find it funny now. With us he was one of the best defenders in the world. With Arsenal his reputation absolutely fell apart and he won absolutely nothing. I cant wait to see what he has planned for Tottenham.
