Tottenham plan January swoop for Southampton ace

Luke Shaw (Southampton)Tottenham are considering a January move for Southampton full-back Luke Shaw, according to reports from the Sunday People.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has made a new left-back one of his top priorities ahead of the next transfer window after losing Danny Rose – his only orthodox player in the position – to injury.

In the absence of the youngster, Jan Vertonghen has had to fill in, and has voiced his concern at doing so.

Shaw has rapidly emerged as one of the Premier League’s top young players, and is already a first-team regular for the Saints despite being just 18=years-of-age.

AVB sees him as the ideal man to be the Londoners’ first choice left-back for some years to come, and is ready to spend big to secure his signature.

Shaw has indicated that he is happy on the South Coast, but with interest from some of the country’s top sides he could alter his stance ahead of January.

Chelsea and Manchester United are both said to be keen, but Spurs are likely to offer the teenager a greater opportunity of being a regular starter.

Shaw is already being tipped as an outsider to make Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad for next year’s World Cup.

Would a move to Tottenham be a good option for Luke Shaw?
