TOTTENHAM TRANSFER NEWS: SPUR SEE TONEY BID REJECTED AS BRENTFORD STAR AGREES TERMS

Tottenham had a bid turned down by Brentford for Ivan Toney, who has already verbally agreed personal terms with the side, FootballTransfers can reveal.

Sources reveal that while the England international has accepted a wage offer, Spurs’ £40 million bid was rejected by the West London club. Brentford are asking for a fee of £65m but it is understood that an offer of £55m would secure the deal.

We are told that Spurs have the financial capability to outbid any competitors for the Bees hitman. However, the available funds will need to be carefully managed, as the Lilywhites plan to bring in five new signings to boost their chances of securing Champions League football next season.
