Tottenham have told Sunderland they can have Peter Crouch - if they take another fringe player with them!

The Mail on Sunday says Spurs want to offload several big earners who will not feature in the first team next season.

Alan Hutton, Robbie Keane, David Bentley, Wilson Palacios, Sebastien Bassong and Giovani Dos Santos are all surplus to requirements.

Sunderland were told when they inquired about Crouch that Spurs would only sell if they also took a couple of those players.
