Despite Fernando Llorente moving on from Tottenham Hotspur this summer as his contract came to an end, there have always been simple suggestions that we may have placed another 12-month deal on the table for him as he continues to assess his future.

Report Suggests Former Spurs Striker Could Still Return On Reduced Terms

With his release, there were strong suggestions on the rumour mill that the 34-year-old would return home to the Spanish leagues as he looked to wind his career down, and everyone knows he splits the opinions in the fanbase right down the middle in terms of his usefulness as back up to Harry Kane.

Over the weekend the Daily Mail seem to have simply rehashed the rumours of a 12 month deal and presented it as ‘new fact’ with the twist that the new one year deal had now definitely been offered.

It led to the inevitable split of opinions on social media as fans debated whether or not this would be a sensible decision by the club. Must admit I half liked the idea of convincing Peter Crouch to come back out of retirement, but given the prominence of Kane at the club, unless we find a striker capable of playing an alternative role in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s system (if it doesn’t change), Llorente continues to make some sense.
