Spurs boss AVB praises Swansea over Michu deal

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has praised Swansea City counterpart Michael Laudrup over his deal for Michu.

Spurs are at home to Swansea today and AVB thinks Laudrup has ­secured the transfer of the season in Spanish striker Michu.

He said: "Without doubt, Michael had the jump on everyone ­because he knew him from Spanish football. He caught us cold. A great signing.

"But we have ­Jermain Defoe, who told me he is playing the best ­football of his life and no one can argue with that."
