Tresor Mputu: Ready for a move to England

The 27-year-old TP Mazembe striker claims to have been wanted at Spurs and Rovers earlier in his career, but opted against a transfer in order to continue his development at home.

He is now ready to play in England and is reportedly being tracked by Tottenham, Arsenal and Fulham.

He said: "I have been invited by Tottenham before with Harry Redknapp, and also Blackburn when Paul Ince was in charge, but it did not materialise because I was not ready to come to England. Now I am ready."

Mputu, who is thought to be valued at around £1m, was banned for a year in 2010 for harassing a referee during a Cecafa Club Cup match.

He is currently preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations, which take place in South Africa from January 19th to February 10th.

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.
