According to The Sun, Leyton Orient have turned down a £300,000 offer from Tottenham Hotspur for central defender Dan Happe.
The 20-year-old made 46 appearances in the National League during the 2018-19 campaign, playing a key role as the O’s secured a return to the Football League.
The report claims that Leeds United, Leicester City and Norwich City are also interested in signing the Englishman in this summer’s transfer window.
And Orient are not exactly in a strong position when it comes to negotiations as Happe’s current deal will expire next summer.

Spurs are fairly well stocked in central defence but the Orient youngster has been compared to a young Harry Maguire.
And considering Maguire has been touted with an £70m move to Manchester United this summer, you’d assume most would be in favour of a move for Happe.
However, not everyone is convinced by his potential, while one fan suggested that order has been restored after an anomalous week of transfer activity at Spurs following the signings of Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele.
Here’s what the fans have had to say in response to the report…
Oh god please no. I don’t watch our under 18s but we must have better prospects than dan happe. Seen him 7/8 times. League 2 at the very best
