No deal for Sneijder!

Well at least that is the word from AVB and the players agent!

Of course we haven't always to believe a word from an agent, whilst it has been known for a manager to tell a little white lie, so what should we believe? Of course the Journo who talked up the deal was also at pains to say that the deal wasn't done, but agreements in principle were there or there abouts. In effect it means little or nothing and agreeing a deal, still means that a player can refuse or join someone else, simply because they like another option better. so as usual, lets not get excited until we see the player holding the shirt or at least announce it on his Twitter account.

As for Wesley (I still struggle to spell his last name) it is clear he is a player with the quality to add something, but would he be the right player over others that might fit better or offer greater value, either financially or in being younger and perhaps hungrier? Willian? Moutinho? Belhanda? Eriksen? are all on a very long list of suggested playmakers who could solve Tottenham's perceived creativity issues, but which one is the right one to sign, should we manage to do a deal? Of course the other argument is whether we should wait to get out No1 target in the summer, should that be the only time we could get our first choice?

For me, I feel that Sneijder would be a very exciting addition, but I do worry that his not playing in over three months, will detract from his influence this season as he may well be lacking in fitness as well as needing a little time to adjust to a different league and its demands. Of course if the price is right and he is truly motivated by the move, his arrival would make a very big statement for Spurs, but making such a signing only works out of it works on the pitch and such a signing demands instant results, and therefore I wonder if this is the right move for the player or Tottenham in this window...
