Lennon Looking For Way Out
Spurs star Aaron Lennon is reportedly looking for a way out of White Hart Lane this summer, with reigning champions Manchester United apparently hot on his tail. The winger is reportedly far from happy at White Hart Lane, and with countryman Andros Townsend, along with Erik Lamela and Gylfi Sigurdsson ahead of him in the pecking order on the wings, and Nacer Chadili not far behind, who could blame him?
Lennon started his career at Leeds in 2001, and made his first Senior appearance in 2003, going on to score one goal in 38 games for the club in the league, before financial troubles meant to had to be sold on; Spurs his destination.
So far at White Hart Lane, Lennon has been a revelation, scoring 26 goals in 257 league appearances, and pushing hard for inclusion in England's international setup at every opportunity, making 21 appearances for his country.
If Lennon does move to Manchester United, rumour has it that out of favour Javier Hernandez will be the player moving the other way; the Mexican, valued at £15million, has been a perennial bench warmer at old trafford since his move there, and has spoken candidly of his desire to leave, saying "I'm very eager to play as my club don't take me much into account."
His disillusion with life in Manchester will only serve to fuel transfer speculation, with only the strained relationship between the two sides likely to prevent the deal.
Tottenham accused Man United of 'chasing' Dimitar Berbatov in his eventual £31million deadline-day switch in 2008 but that seems unlikely to get in the way of the two sides striking a deal if it would be beneficial for both sides.
