   MEHSTG's no-spin story ... Tim Sherwood appeared on Sky Sports' "Goals On Sunday" and is reported as saying about the Spurs fans appreciation of Harry Kane ...
"I laugh now when I hear Tottenham fans say ‘he’s one of our own’. He wasn’t always one of their own because if [Roberto] Soldado was sitting on the bench, if Harry hadn’t scored after half an hour then they would be singing for Soldado to come on the pitch. But now he’s one of our own. Brilliant. Fantastic and he is one of their own.”
As always Tim is always right.  I don't think he mentioned that Mauricio Pochettino has the best win ratios as a Spurs manager though.

   Tottenham's transfer business in the summer has been interesting a lot of sources today, with Moussa Dembele of Glasgow Celtic being the most likely incomer according to reports.  The 32 goal striker is expected to fetch GBP30 million on the open market and Tottenham appear ready to go back for the player they passed on last close season.  Another forward being lined up is Rafa Mir of Valencia, who has an affordable release clause at the moment and Spurs could swoop and loan the 19 year old out for next season.  An even younger forward - 18 year old Ben Brereton of Nottingham Forest - is on the Spurs radar, but they will be challenged by Liverpool, arsenal and Manchester United for his signature.  Chelsea and Spurs are said to be keen on Napoli's Belgian striker Dries Martens, who .  More frighteningly, Spurs are being linked with a move for Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson, but from what I have seen of him, my opinion is that he will not cut it at Premier League level.  Liverpool, Chelsea and Southampton are his other suitors in this transfer chase.  The Telegraph reckon Spurs are lining up Burnley defender Michael Keane in case Eric Dier is off to Manchester United.  Rumours are circulating that Toby Alderweireld will not sign a new contract at Tottenham, with a release clause of GBP30 million quoted, although this is not in force until 2019.  This has prompted Internazionale to be linked to the Belgian central defender and also to Kyle Walker.
   Spurs have applied to Haringey Council to add an extra 98 seats to the capacity of the new stadium, with the Planning Application amendment due to be hears early next month.  It would take the total capacity to 61,559.
