Mbola claims Tottenham interest

Emmanuel Mbola claims that a move to Tottenham is on the cards after a trial with the North London club. The 16-year-old is currently playing his football in Armenia with Pyunik Yerevan.

However, Mbola is now in dispute with his employers, who he is contracted to until 2011, and claims they are threatening to scupper his hoped-for move to White Hart Lane.

"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."

"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."
