Negotiations continue… Middlesbrough head coach Chris Wilder admits that Spurs are indeed trying to formalize the transfer of right-back Djed Spence.
Since the beginning of the summer, Spence has already been pursued by Tottenham, but the last few days have been very difficult in negotiations. Why?
The fact is that both clubs are trying to come up with the right price for the young Englishman’s services.
Speaking at a press conference for the Northern Echo, the coach confirmed that Djed’s transfer can only happen at the right price, period.
“There’s always three parties involved in any deal, and it’s got to be right for all three parties for it to happen. We’re a reasonable football club, but some of the numbers you sometimes get quoted are ridiculous, and we’re not going to allow anyone to take advantage of us.”
Having had a very successful season at Nottingham Forest, the young Englishman helped the team move up to the top division, and thus attracted the interest of a top Premier League clubs. Tottenham are keen to acquire the right-back, though the decision is up to him.
