Emmanuel Mbola adamant Tottenham move is on

Emmanuel Mbola is confident of closing a move to Tottenham.

The 16-year-old has been training with Spurs and is currently playing his football in Armenia with Pyunik Yerevan.

"I am not going back there (Pyunik Yerevan) because I have issues with my contract. I could not sign for Tottenham because I have to finalise things with my club," he told the Zambian Post.

"Hotspur liked me a lot but it is just because of the contract confusion with Pyunik and my agent."

Mbola has just returned to Zambia from a trial in North London and the left-back thoroughly enjoyed his spell with the club.

"It was fantastic because I trained with the first and second team," Mbola said. "They were happy with me and I should be going back maybe next week depending on how fast the issues are sorted out here."
