Watford will reportedly allow starlet Ashley Young join Tottenham if they can have Callum Davenport and Wayne Routledge in exchange.
Hornets boss Adrian Boothroyd has already stressed this week that £7million is ?not enough' to tempt him to sell Young during the transfer window as he ideally wants to keep the 21-year-old at Vicarage Road to help in their battle to avoid relegation from the Premiership.
However, while Aston Villa, West Ham and Liverpool have all been linked with a swoop, it now looks more likely that Spurs will win the race, but only if boss Martin Jol agrees to let two of his current squad move in the opposite direction as part of the deal.
A stumbling block for the deal is Jol would be loathe to let Davenport depart knowing he would be left with only three centre-halves in Michael Dawson, Anthony Gardner and the injured Ledley King. Therefore the Dutch tactician will have to strengthen that area before anything can happen.
Routledge is currently on loan at Fulham, however, Spurs can recall the winger this month if they are to use him as a makeweight in the Young transfer. Indeed it is thought that Boothroyd will try to sign the former Crystal Palace man even if he is not involved in a part-exchange.
do you reckon this will happen?
