Tottenham are willing to make a bumper swap offer for Aston Villa skipper Ron Vlaar.

The Daily Mail says Tottenham are considering a move for Aston Villa defender Vlaar and could use midfielder Lewis Holtby as a makeweight.

The Dutch centre-back is in demand after helping his country reach the World Cup semi-finals in Brazil earlier this month.

Tottenham are also prepared to offer Michael Dawson in a player-plus-cash deal but he is reluctant to leave London.
