Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is chasing Manchester United defender Zeki Fyers. The Sun says the defender, 19, is set to join up with new Tottenham boss AVB within a week, after ducking pre-season training with United, where his contract ended in June.

Spurs only want to pay £2million - half United's valuation - so Alex Ferguson will argue his case at a transfer tribunal.

It is another huge blow to Fergie's dreams of creating another golden generation of United graduates after Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison also left for Juventus and West Ham respectively.
