Danny Ings transfer admission

It is still somewhat of a surprise that Tottenham didn’t make a move for the Englishmen in the most recent summer transfer window, especially considering his contractual situation at the latter stages of his Southampton career.

According to the Telegraph, Nuno Espirito Santo was keen on bringing the striker to north London earlier this summer to play alongside Harry Kane.

However, less than two weeks before the start of the new Premier League season, Ings made the surprise switch to Aston Villa for £25million.

Journalist Tom Barclay was left surprised by Fabio Paratici’s decision not to actively pursue the signature of the ex-Liverpool marksmen.

He told GiveMeSport: “Danny Ings is so good, he creates so many of his chances, he’s such a good finisher. I’m still surprised that Spurs didn’t take him.”

Lillywhite’s fans will be relieved to see Kane break his goalscoring barren run at the weekend with his goal against Newcastle. Otherwise, the decision to not pursue Ings would have looked more silly and costly in the long-term.

Sergio Reguilon’s message to Newcastle fan

Spurs left-back Sergio Reguilon has sent his best wishes in the form of a nine-word message to the Newcastle fan who suffered a cardiac arrest in the Premier League clash between the two clubs.

Reguilon, alongside his great performance on Sunday in Tyneside, played a massive part in doing something more important than the football itself.

The Lilywhites led 2-1 before the pause as the referee decided to take the two teams to the sidelines before ushering them into the changing rooms.

“I was very nervous. I went to the referee and said ‘look at this, stop the match’, and the referee and the linesman looked there and stopped the match,” the 24-year-old said in his Sky Sports post-match interview.

After the game, the Spurs defender tweeted: “Football is not the most important. Get well soon.”

Replying to his message, Newcastle star Saint-Maximin said: “Yesterday we were opponents but above all we were human beings, thank you for what you did brother.”

Ex-Newcastle and Tottenham winger David Ginola, who suffered a cardiac arrest during a charity match in France in 2016, was at St James’ Park working as a television pundit, and urged everybody to get CPR training.

“[The incident] brings back some very weird memories,” the 54-year-old said in the Sky Sports studio during the stoppage.
