Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon’s future at the club appears to be coming to a halt after he has been made to train with the youth team in order to just keep of his fitness. This is seen as a major sign that Lennon does not figure in the plans of manager Mauricio Pochettino. Tottenham have already sold a few important players in this transfer window. Kaboul had been a first choice regular at Tottenham in the last few years. He has been sold to Sunderland – a team that was once rejected by the defender himself.

After spending the second half of last season on loan at Everton, Lennon will now target a permanent move away from White Hart Lane. The England international will find no shortage of takers, but the transfer value of the player is now expected to plummet. Since the interested parties are now made aware that Lennon does not come anywhere near the first team selection, they are likely to offer significantly less than they would have for the player when he was in the first team squad. Another player who is also on his way out is striker Emmanuel Adebayor. Despite a good start to his life at Spurs, the Togo international scored only three goals in 13 appearances last season.

His troublemaker attitude is unlikely to help matters. Lennon and Adebayor are now training with the youth team with the prospect of completing a transfer before this window shuts down. Training with the youth team gives them a chance to keep up their fitness ahead of the new campaign. It is understood that West Ham are interested in bringing the player. However, any deal will depend on the green light given by chairman Daniel Levy, who is known as one of the hardest negotiators in football.
