Reading keeper Hahnemann flattered by Spurs interest

Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann has welcomed interest from Tottenham.

Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann has welcomed interest from Tottenham.

USA international Hahnemann told the Reading Chronicle: "It’s really flattering, though I don’t know how much of it is true.

"But I work very hard and it is nice to get recognition from another club, especially one as big as Tottenham."

The 36-year-old is said to be committed to Reading's bid to get promotion back to the Barclays Premier League.

But he would find a move to the Carling Cup winners hard to resist - especially as his current contract runs out at the end of the season - and reports earlier this week said Spurs were already in talks with his agent.

"The scary thing is that, as of August, I won’t get paid any more,' said Hahnemann. 'That’s a frightening prospect in anyone’s book so you never know what can happen in football."
