La Liga Side To Make January Swoop For Spurs Keeper?

La Liga side Valencia are keen to bring Tottenham Hotspur’s reserve goalkeeper Cesar Sanchez back to Spain when the transfer window reopens in January, according to reports.

37-year-old former Spanish International Cesar joined Spurs in the summer from Real Zaragoza to be understudy, to Brazilian Heurelho Gomes another summer signing from Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven.

However, despite being a Champions League winner with Real Madrid in 2002, Cesar has only made one substitute appearance for the Premiership side. Which was against Liverpool in the Carling Cup due to an injury to Gomes.

Gomes has made a series of high-profile errors since his arrival at White Hart Lane, but Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has stuck with the Brazilian and has resisted giving the experienced Spaniard a chance in the Premier League thus far.

Now reports are suggesting that Valencia are keen to bring back veteran Cesar to Spain to replace German International Timo Hildebrand at the Mestalla, with a January move for the Tottenham keeper being mooted.
