Spurs not interested in Carroll

Tottenham Hotspur are in the middle of a heavy crisis when it comes to their forward line, with Harry Kane facing a long time on the sidelines through injury and Son Heung-min absent due to playing at the AFC Asian Cup. Manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed last week that Vincent Janssen wasn’t in his plans at all, and that has obviously remained unchanged with Fernando Llorente starting on Sunday against Fulham and 20-year-old Kazaiah Sterling named on the bench, meaning there was still no place for Janssen despite the lack of options.

Reports earlier suggested that West Ham’s Andy Carroll was a target for the north Londoners, but Sky Sports now claim that’s not the case.

The 30-year-old former Newcastle and Liverpool striker recently returned to fitness having had ankle surgery in October, but so far he hasn’t been able to nail down a starting spot. Carroll’s contract with the Hammers expires in the summer, but the 30-year-old target-man has revealed his contract contains a clause that could see the deal extended for further two years.
