Tottenham ace Palacios urges clubs to check on Honduras talent

Tottenham midfielder Wilson Palacios says Premiership clubs should be looking more at Honduras' talent pool.

Palacios left Wigan in January and has since earned praise for his no-nonsense approach, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp deeming the £12million fee to be money well spent for what the midfielder brings.

"I have always played football in this way, ever since I was young in Honduras, football is very raw, very strong, but there is plenty of technique too," Palacios said.

"All the kids in Honduras play like that. The blend of technique and toughness suits the Premier League very well but the thing about the game here is the speed, we have to adapt to that very quickly.

"The speed is something that really hits you when you come here."
