Tottenham fans react to latest Ross Barkley update


It’s in both Everton and Tottenham’s interest to get a deal for Ross Barkley done before the start of the season.

The playmaker has just a year left on his contract and hasn’t committed to an extension, paving the way for his departure this summer.

Spurs, meanwhile, are on the hunt for an attacking midfielder, yet they seem to have made little progress in the negotiations for the England international.


The Mirror have detailed some of the stumbling blocks that have been postponing a deal, claiming the Lilywhites think the 23-year-old should be available for just £15million given his contract situation. Naturally, Everton think that’s ludicrous as they are holding out for £50m, so it remains to be seen how they will meet in the middle.

Personal terms are also proving an issue. The same newspaper have it that Barkley is demanding £150,000 a week to move to north London – which is more than the wages of star striker Harry Kane or captain Hugo Lloris.

Daniel Levy’s stance on wages is well known, and Barkley’s representatives must be aware that they’re never going to win that particular battle. In fact, Spurs fans aren’t buying the reports that Barkley asked for those sums at all.
