Spurs In For Okocha Says Tabloid

Last updated : 25 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Reports in the News of the World suggest that Bolton Wanderers captain Jay-Jay Okocha will snub the new contract offer which the Trotters have offered to him to join up with Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

The London club are said to be chasing the Nigerian playmaker who has been offered £48,000 per week to stay in the North West but the reports of a move to White Hart Lane have been further fuelled after the former Paris Saint Germain player bought a house in the capital some months ago.

However the foundation of these reports remains to be seen. Judging by his goal celebrations in Wednesday night's Carling Cup Semi Final win over Aston Villa the player is clearly settled in Lancashire and it is just another weak attempt at trying to part one of the Premiership's star players away from so-called "unfashionable" Bolton.
