    Steven Reid

    Just read on a spurs message board that Blackburn have accepted a bid from Spurs for the player. Find it hard to believe myself.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Spurs have considerable muscle in the transfer market these days. Remember, Man United were strongly considering making bids for Jermain Defoe and Paul Robinson in recent seasons, but Spurs rushed in with bids of their own. Personally, I hope Reid doesn't go to Spurs. He might find it difficult with both Carrick and Jenas there already.

    Spurs would be a terrible move IMO - they already have plenty of midfielders

    Any chance of a citation?

    This would be a bad move for Reid. He's a confidence player. Unless Spurs are going to off-load Carrick then this just isn't a good idea.

    i think there were 14 on the books there at one time last season, made Danny Murphy's move there look strange i thought.i hope Reid stays put, he is finally established in his best position at one of the most improved sides in that division, under a manager who looks like he might be the real thing.

    They sold Davis, Mendes and let Routledge and Ziegler go out on loan.

    At the moment they have

    Davids
    Reid

    Carrick
    Jenas
    Tanio

    Murphy
    Lennon
    In Trap we trust

    Is Mark Yeates considered a midfielder or a striker there?

    I heard before Jol does rate him highly, and sent him out on loan because he couldn't offer him first team football this season. Mind you he supposedly rated Kelly too....

    Yeates spent this whole season on the left wing so he's probably a bit like McGeady position wise.

    Spurs have 4 central midfielders, 1 is 33 and another is Danny Murphy. I could see them going for Reid.

    Apparently they are going to offload Davids. Still, why leave Blackburn when he is starting to command the team? That much more money?

    Could be personal too, he's from London and reports said he was reluctant to leave London for Lancashire for that reason

    Well that adds a little more colour to it then. Reid could, and I say could, be our central midfield lynchpin for the next 5-7 years. It's important that he makes the right decision.

    Lads, all of this because of a post on a Spurs message board?

    Spurs have made an opening bid of 2 million for Reid according to football365. He originally moved to Blackburn for 2.5, but given his form in the second half of the season they'll have to be looking for more than that, right?

    Isn't it still classified as a transfer rumor and the gossip is just that Spurs are preparing an offer.

    Football365 were clear on the $$ amount. 2 million does seem awfully low though.
