Tottenham are in talks with Olympique Lyon for midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.

Tottenham are in talks with Olympique Lyon for midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.

talkSPORT says preliminary discussions have taken place over the availability of the Lyon midfielder, who only moved to the Ligue 1 club from Bordeaux in the summer.

But Gourcuff has apparently told Lyon he would be open to a move to the Premier League although they are understandably very reluctant to let the player leave after such a short spell.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will back Redknapp in the transfer window but with Lyon expected to demand at least £25m, he faces a fight to land the talented playmaker.
