Tottenham in friendly talks with India's East Bengal

East Bengal have been in discussions with Spurs over a friendly a week after the Barclays Premier League finishes, according to reports in India.

Director Amit Sen has spoken about the possibility of a match with Spurs at Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata but also suggested problems with negotiations.

Spurs have also been linked with a friendly in Singapore, again for the period just after the season finishes.

"The club has yet to fully confirm its plans for post and pre-season," said a spokesperson for Spurs.

They have announced a tour to Rotterdam in August for the Feyenoord Jubileum Tournament.

The Dutch club have invited the teams they have faced in European finals - Spurs, Celtic and Borussia Dortmund.

Spurs sporting director Damien Comolli said: "The tournament is prestigious and will provide perfect pre-season competition for us.

"We shall be entering the final two weeks of our preparations and Juande plans to build up our pre-season gradually against differing opponents."

Sen's comments also hinted at Spurs looking at China, which has previously been suggested as a summer destination for Ramos' team.
