Tomas Hubocan: Linked with a move to Tottenham and Newcastle

Hubocan is thought to have caught the eye of the Premier League clubs along with Serie A sides Inter Milan and Napoli.

The 27-year-old has impressed for Zenit in this season's Europa League and he helped the Russian outfit overcome Liverpool last month.

Hubocan's agent, Michal Holescak, claims Tottenham and Newcastle have expressed an interest in the centre-back, but that the player is happy at Zenit.

"Newcastle and Tottenham are interested in him, but we had contacts with Inter Milan and Napoli too," Holescak told tuttomercatoweb.com.

"Tomas is a top defender, a player for big European teams. However he is happy in (Luciano) Spalletti's team: he's focused on the Russian Premier League and on the Europe League."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
