Despite new Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp publicly backing under fire goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes earlier this week, Spurs continue to be linked with January moves for alternatives. The latest to be linked is Wolverhampton Wanderers keeper Wayne Hennessey, according to The Sun.
Tottenham have already been linked with Ben Foster at Manchester United, Robert Green at West Ham along with Shay Given at Newcastle United, who Redknapp has declared an interest in. Should the Republic of Ireland International become available.
Now the Sun claims that Spurs are lining up a £5million bid for Welsh International Hennessey, with the 21-year-old Wolves Player of the Year top of Redknapp’s list to replace summer signing from PSV Eindhoven Gomes.
Hennessey has been at Wolves since 2006 and has made 58 league appearances during his time at the Molineux Stadium. Hennessey has 15 caps for Wales and was named in the 2007/08 PFA Championship Team of the Year.
However, Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will be reluctant to let Hennessey leave for White Hart Lane should Spurs come calling and with Wolves top of the Championship will tell Hennessey that he could realise any Premier League ambitions with Wolves.
