Spurs plot shock swoop for former England ace

Spurs are being linked with a shock move to bring former stopper Paul Robinson back to the club.

The retired England international enjoyed a successful four-year spell at the club after signing for £1.5 million in 2004, and SkySports.com claim the keeper could make a surprise return to Tottenham Hotspur.

A product of the Leeds United academy, Robinson spent six seasons as a senior at Elland Road before leaving for White Hart Lane.

Spurs sold the player to Blackburn in 2008 for a fee in the region of £3.5 million, and Robinson has proved himself again as one of the Barclays Premier League's top stoppers whilst at Ewood Park.

SkySports claim Harry Redknapp remains unconvinced by his current goalkeeping crop in north London, and is considering replacing Heurelho Gomes as the long-term number one for Tottenham Hotspur.


 

With backup keeper Carlo Cudicini out-of-contract at the Lane in the summer, it's little surprise that Spurs are in the market for a goalkeeper as they look to continue their challenge for trophies both this season and in the future.

Robinson emerging as the top target is a surprise though, with reports claiming Spurs boss Redknapp is monitoring his situation closely in Lancashire.

Rovers appear to have reacted to the speculation by opening contract talks with the player, and will look to keep the shot-stopper in their possession for a few more seasons to come.

The lure of Tottenham Hotspur is likely to be strong for the 31-year-old though, who described the fans at the Lane as one of the best things about the club. His fine form means Spurs would have to pay in the region of £4.5 million for his services.
