Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to continue the winning run when they face Crystal Palace tomorrow in the Premier League.
The North Londoners were very interested in signing Palace’s star playmaker Yannick Bolasie in the summer transfer window but the move did not happen.
According to reports (Express), in the final days of the summer transfer window, Croydon Advertiser claimed that Spurs agreed a deal worth $31m with Crystal Palace to hire the services of the Congo star.
However, Alan Pardew has come up with a completely different story now and says (Daily Star) that Tottenham never made any official offer for Bolasie. Pardew claimed:
“Yan is a fantastic talent. There was a strong link in the media but actually no link officially from Spurs to us”
The 26-year-old African star was in top form last season and directly contributed in 15 goals (4 goals and 11 assists) in 35 games for the Eagles. Such top form had to attract interest from clubs but Yannick remains at Crystal Palace much to the delight of the supporters.
Palace are currently 3 points ahead of Tottenham and can pile more misery on the North London side by beating them.
