Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing up a shock move for unsettled Everton midfield player Leon Osman at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has been at Goodison Park his whole career, joining the Toffees 13 years ago, during which time he has featured in 279 matches for the club.
However, the England international’s contract set to expire next summer, and though Everton having recently offered Osman a one-year extension on his current deal at the club, the player’s future is set to be resolved either way in the coming months.
The Metro link Osman’s fate to that of manager David Moyes, whose deal actually expires at the end of this season, and claim the midfield schemer has broken off contract talks for the time being.
At a price of only £6 million and with a good five years at the top still available to the hard-working midfield player, Osman could end up being quite a canny purchase by Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas.
Five goals in 31 top-flight matches this season are hardly eye-catching numbers, but Osman is a player who offers more than just goals and his creativity around the box, neat passing and sensational work-rate would see him fit in nicely to the North London club’s midfield.
