Alen Halilovic: Strongly linked with Spurs deal

Alen Halilovic: Strongly linked with Spurs deal

It is reported that Spurs are willing to pay more than £15million for the pair - who are both 17, although Manchester City are also credited with an interest.

Dinamo say that at least one of the players will remain with them for the rest of the season - but it is open to debate if either would be allowed work permits to play in England.

Even though Croatia are now EU members, regulations mean that players are not free to move until 2016.

Of the two players, Halilovic would be most likely to be granted a permit on appeal as he is already a full international.

"We agreed with their future club, that one of them remains at least another year with us," club president Mirko Barisic told Sportske Novosti.

"For now we cannot confirm to which club they are going but it is true that they are both leaving.

"It is just too early to talk about the club which bought them. We will confirm that when everything will be sorted out.

"The transfer fee? 20 million Euros is - let us put it this way - the right number."

Jedvaj is a central defender with just over a dozen first-team appearances under his belt, whilst Halilovic is one of the most coveted young midfielders in world football.

Halilovic is the youngest player in Dinamo's history and is already part of Croatia's senior squad.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
