Tottenham to Sell Lee

Tottemham defender Lee Young-pyo

Tottenham Hotspur defender Lee Young-pyo might move to a new team this summer.

Britain's The Times predicted the 30-year-old South Korean's departure along with several players, saying Tottenham is expected to reach an agreement with Charlton Athletic to sign Darren Bent.

It said Tottenham is believed to have paid about 16.5 million pounds for the England forward. The fee will break Tottenham's transfer record of 11 million pounds, which they paid to Dynamo Kiev for Sergei Rebrov seven years ago.

Other players mentioned with the South Korea's second Premier Leaguer are forward Ahmed Hossam Mido, Anthony Gardner, Hossam Ghaly, Danny Murphy, Wayne Routledge and Teemu Tainio.

Egyptian Mido has prepared for transferring after losing to Irish Robert Keane and Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov in a duel for the starting spot and prospect Routledge, who was on loan with Fulham, is also expected to transfer to the London-based club.

A number of left backs are responsible for Tottenham trying to sell Lee.

Tottenham, which already has left backs Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Lee, has completed a deal to bring defender Gareth Bale from Southampton to have three players at the position.

After the deal, English media reported that the Spurs have been trying to move either Lee or Ekotto.

The Times said on June 14 that AS Monaco had inquired about signing the Cameroonian but the club would sell Lee.

Meanwhile, Italy's Serie A teams AS Roma, Torino and Udinese have shown interest in him.

Lee, who joined Tottenham in 2005, is rehabilitating from knee ligament injury.

Yah, the vast number of clubs that have fallen under the influence of either the Papacy, the Masons or the Grey Aliens really does limit the options Lee can consider... ;P

And with the Beeb citing a rumour from the Sun:

"Chelsea have upped their bid for Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda to £12m after being priced out of a move for Sevilla's £20m-rated full-back Daniel Alves, who is wanted by Liverpool."

Who knows, maybe Stalts has a ghost of a chance to break back into the first team next season. I hope he can. Anyway, last season he got FA Cup, League Cup & UEFA Cup matches, and there could be plenty of them for Spurs to come.
