Everton star urges Tottenham loanee to complete permanent move

Everton star Phil Jagielka is hoping Tottenham Hotspur loanee Aaron Lennon decides to complete a permanent move to the club in the summer, Daily Star reports.

The 28-year-old completed the loan move from Spurs at the end of the January window and has been on great form for the Toffees so far.

Lennon looks to have already earned himself a regular starting role under manager Roberto Martinez since his arrival, making 13 appearances and scoring two goals.

Jagielka praised the winger for his form and also believes that if he is indeed for sale, the Toffees board will surely plot a move for his services.

“He’s been a massive, key component to why we’ve done so well these last couple of months,” he said.

“I’m sure if Spurs are looking to get rid, then the manager and the board will be looking to make that permanent.”

There was speculation that Tottenham are looking cash in on him for a £10million fee, a number that Martinez’s side aren’t willing to meet.

The manager believes that based on the player not being needed at White Hart Lane, the asking price may need to be reduced for the potential transfer to take place.
