Pepe Reina appears to have played a major role

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina appears to have played a major role in convincing Adrian to move to West Ham United in 2013.

There has been a proliferation of Spanish goalkeepers across the top European leagues. Adrian has been one of those to have established himself in the first-team of a club like West Ham. The goalkeeper was signed by the Premier League club despite having played only 32 first-team games for his Spanish club. They had undoubted faith in his talent, but it took a lot of convincing from Reina in order for the move to happen.

Spurs played last game was versus the Toffees

The last game that the Spurs played ahead of international break was versus the Toffees and that was a scoreless draw.

Everton is not that bad a team and a draw against them is not the most disappointing result ever for Tottenham, but, coming out of White Hart Lane post that game, most of the fans were bitterly disappointed.

It was the 4th match in a row in this Premier League that Tottenham’s attack just looked powerless.

Mauricio Pochettino’s formation in that Everton game had three players in the attacking role in the midfield, but, the penetration was still missing.

The pressure was being applied by that trio, but, the Everton defence had them covered easily and that was because there was no real speed at the flanks.

Aaron Lennon’s future is unclear but he is grateful for Everton’s Roberto Martinez

Aaron Lennon’s latest season has seen him performing with Everton as the English player played the second half of the past Premier League season with Everton after having signed a loan deal which expired at the end of the season.

Now that the deal has expired, the future of Aaron Lennon is uncertain as the player has earned praise and recognition during his time spent at Goodison Park but since his contract with Everton has reached it’s end, the player has to make a move back to Tottenham Hotspur.

If Everton’s Roberto Martinez has been impressed enough by the performances of Aaron Lennon, the manager of Everton might be motivated on launching an offer to Tottenham Hotspur and attempt to sign Aaron Lennon on a permanent contract.

Roberto Martinez appreciated Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon

Roberto Martinez has suggested that former Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon has been a major reason behind the club’s revival in form in the last month.

After flirting with relegation for much of the campaign, Everton have dropped only two points in the last five matches. This form may have come a bit late for European football next season, but it could see Everton back into the top 10 of the table before the end of the campaign. They continued their winning run after a 1-0 success over Burnley at Goodison Park. Belgian winger Kevin Mirallas scored the only goal of the game while Barnes was sent off for a second yellow card just before half-time.

Aaron Lennon dont smile much in front of Camera Pose

Aaron Lennon is one of those players who find it hard to smile even while posing for photographs.

The 27-year old player has made his way to Merseyside club Everton for the remaining few months of the 2014-15 Season.

Doing a photo session while unveiling his Everton jersey, Lennon had quite a serious look on his face and the people at Social networking sites have been taking a dig at him for having such facial expression.

Those pictures of Lennon do look funny.
And Lennon himself also agrees to that. According to the winger, he’s been told by his mom to try and keep a smiling face while being photographed.

Aaron Lennon may not Play many Games in Tottenham Hotspur

On 2005, when Aaron Lennon joined Tottenham Hotspur he became a regular starter for the Premier League club as the English winger made over 20 league appearances in every single season until the current season as Lennon has seen his time on the playing grounds being limited due to the arrivals of Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend.

The coach of Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino is trying to rebuild his squad and it does not seem like Aaron Lennon will be playing any important role in the team.

Aaron Lennon along with a number of other players in the squad of Mauricio Pochettinois rumored to be on their out way of the White Hart Lane as they aren’t currently in the near future plans of the coach.

Stoke City to buy Aaron Lennon

Stoke City are reportedly looking at the possibility of signing winger Aaron Lennon in the January transfer window.

The England international has lost his first-team spot in the last few months. A number of injuries in the last year have not helped his case. It appears that he may not return to the first-team spot on a regular basis as long as Mauricio Pochettino remains the manager. Further, the Spurs boss is also keen on trimming the squad, which he managed to some extent during the summer. As a result, Lennon could be available for around £ 7 million during January.

Lennon’s Spell With Spurs CLose To End

Aaron Lennon’s long spell at Tottenham may come to an end on transfer deadline day after it has been reported that QPR are interested in signing him on a permanent basis. Harry Redknapp knows the England international extremely well after having managed him for a few years when he was at Tottenham. Lennon was one of the important players under the regime of Redknapp, as he formed the perfect partner for Gareth Bale on the right side of the wing. The 27-year-old was a major reason in Tottenham finishing fourth and qualifying for the Champions League a few years ago.

Milan Reveals Close Balotelli Sale

The head of AC Milan has disclosed that he had the opportunity to sell Mario Balotelli for a big amount of money just before the beginning of the ongoing FIFA World Cup and he had almost secured that deal, but, for some reason, it couldn’t materialize.

There have been a lot of rumours of late about a couple of English clubs being interested in buying Balotelli. Arsenal is believed to be one of them.

Balotelli’s performance for his national side Italy in Brazil was not as good as expected. He began aright with a match defining goal against England, but, in the next two games, he disappointed his fans big time.

David Bentley retires from football

David Bentley, the former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur player has retired from professional football at the age of 29, after claiming to have fallen out of love with the game.

The Englishman played for seven different games during his career as a professional – Arsenal and their North London rivals Spurs, Norwich City, West Ham United as well as a stint with FC Rostov. But he spent arguably the most successful spell of his career with Blackburn Rovers, becoming the first ever player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick against Manchester United in a thrilling 4-3 victory over Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
