It’s been a busy week for Tottenham.

After a relatively quiet period following the early purchase of Paulinho very little happened at Tottenham for some time other than the failure to complete the deal for David Villa. For the best part of two weeks it was all about the discussions and negotiations for Christian Benteke which came to a head with the news that he had decided to sign a lucrative new deal with Aston Villa. Many Tottenham supporters were disappointed that it seemed penny pinching had cost the deal when in reality he was not even a Tottenham target.

Shortly after news was released that the club had agreed a deal with FC Twente for the services of Nacer Chadli and so a third Belgian international joined the ranks. AVB now had the player that he was missing last season, a player specialising in the left midfield/forward position and able to do on the left what Gareth Bale became so good at on the right. With this signing obviously the extortionate package being demanded for Bernard becomes immaterial and he will be consigned to the folder marked “Difficult to buy and overpriced Brazilians” there he will join the name Leandro Damiao.

On a positive note for the Tottenham Academy AVB confirmed that Danny Rose would be staying with the first team squad for the upcoming season and seems set to fight for the left back position with Benni Assou-Ekotto. this is good news as Rose is a favourite with the Tottenham faithful primarily because of that special goal against the squatters from down the road.

Quite apart from that good news and the feelgood factor it evoked it was reported that Franco Baldini made a trip to Valencia to set up a deal for Soldado, although that is still a work in process.

It couldn’t possibly all be good news of course as Tottenham lost to Sunderland in the Hong Kong tournament but more worryingly Jan Vertonghen picked up an injury which we all remain hopeful will be minor.

Apart from all that there remains the incessant drivel reported in relation to Gareth Bale.

So a couple more players are now added to the squad list for 2013/14 season as Rose and Chadli are confirmed by AVB and with the strong possibility that the twenty goal striker needed will soon be another.
