Tottenham are lining up a shock move for Sunderland captain John O'Shea.

The Evening Chronicle says Spurs are reportedly weighing up a £3m bid for O’Shea.

The Londoners - with new boss Mauricio Pochettino now at the helm - are looking for defensive reinforcements that can go straight into the team, and O’Shea fits the bill.

O’Shea is about to enter the final year of his contract on Wearside and, with the Republic of Ireland international now 33 years of age, a serious bid from Spurs would leave Sunderland a decision to make.
