The past seven days has seen Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon linked with a move to Newcastle United by many sources, but surely this transfer rumour won’t materialise into anything more?
26-year-old Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is now in his ninth season at White Hart Lane but there still seems to be a sense of unfulfilled promise, despite that fact that he has made over 300 appearances for Spurs.
The pacey midfielder has all the attributes to cause havoc to opposition defenders, but sometimes he lacks that final ball and has only scored 30 goals in his career, showing his doesn’t contribute too much in front of goal.
Lennon also seems to be on the treatment table quite a lot, as he is at the moment, and we have yet to fully see how Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will fit him into his new look team.
It is the influx of players to Spurs that has prompted rumours of a possible exit in the January transfer window for Aaron, but I can’t see Tottenham wanting to lose such a rare talent.
Yes they have brought in a whole host of established stars, but none have the pace of Lennon and none can run at defenders like he does.
Aaron is still only 26-years-old and would be a fantastic signing for Newcastle, but don’t expect Spurs to let him go any time soon.
