Spurs plan bid for £15m Dutchman

Tottenham are reportedly planning a bid for Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul, although not until the summer.

The 23-year-old has played a starring role for the Magpies this season and has impressed all and sundry with numerous commanding displays.

According to the Daily Mail, Harry Redknapp is an admirer of Krul and will make his move for the Dutchman at the end of the season, although Newcastle value him at £15 million.

This is unlikely to perturb Spurs, though, who are on the lookout for a long-term successor to current first-choice 'keeper Brad Friedel.

The veteran shot-stopper moved to White Hart Lane in the summer on a two-year contract, but Redknapp realises the 40-year-old is only a short-term solution to his goalkeeping troubles.

Former No.1 Heurelho Gomes is expected to leave the club during January, having been ousted by Friedel, and Krul is one of a number of custodians linked with a summer move to north London.
