Tottenham Target Want's Arsenal Move

Tottenham Target Want's Arsenal Move

Tottenham target Giles Barnes says he does not want to join his friend and former team-mate Tom 'gimme more pies' Huddlestone.

Tottenham have been monitoring the youngster for over a year now, but they've been dealt a hammer blow after he admitted that he is a massive Arsenal fan.

'I want to play in the Premiership, just like any other player, but now I can play at the highest level with Derby.

'And anyway, I have three years left to go on my contract.

'Tom Huddlestone and I were in digs together when we were in the academy and we still talk now and again on the phone.

'But it was Arsenal, and not Tottenham, who were my favourite club when I was growing up and so I am looking forward to the chance of playing for Derby at the Emirates Stadium.' (ok, 'want's Arsenal move' perhaps not, but hey, I'm bored)

He joins a long list of players who have rejected Tottenham over the last year before they've even made a move for them, including Julio Baptista and Robinho, who said he would 'never join a small club like Tottenahm.'

So even if Baptista and Robinho have their faults, you've got to them, they've got class.
