The club have accepted a £30m offer from an unnamed Chinese club for Mousa Dembele, according to RMC Sport.

The bid from the Far East was believed to have been £60m but with the 100% tax on transfers in China, it means the offer is only worth half as much.

Fans on Twitter reacted to the story:

Verdict:

£30m is the asking price that Daniel Levy has reportedly set for the 30-year-old so the bid seems fair enough. Whether Mousa would agree to a move to the Far East is another question entirely.

No decision from the player himself is likely to happen until after the World Cup. There has been talk that he would prefer a move to Italy, but no Serie A team is going to match this offer from China.

Our no.19 has a year left on his contract so he can’t be forced to move if he doesn’t want to, but we would likely want to get some money for him during this transfer window if he doesn’t want to sign a new deal.

  • If true, a decent deal for an aging, often injured player, who apparently wants to move on any way, and who plays in a position where he can be replaced. This is perhaps one out so can we now expect one in, as apparently we can’t/won’t sign anybody until players leave. This of course means that the longer clubs drag out buying any Spurs players, the longer we are delayed in making signings. If the reported £15M bid for Grealis h is true then we are not really serious about making signings anyway, he will leave Villa but not to come to Spurs if that is the best we can manage. Still talk of Martial but are we serious, the fee and wages required would frighten Daniel to death.

  • What would prevent Mousa Dembele returning to the Premier League after a (half-) season in China? He wouldn’t be the first to want to leave that country’s football league. I’d prefer him still to be at Tottenham when the Premier League season starts, as he’s done well for the club, and with luck a deal could be arrived at to ensure he plays on with Spurs.

  • I already know that the first time that Sissoko stupidly gives the ball away I’ll be shouting at the TV and berating Spurs for selling Dembo.
