Tottenham Eyeing Swoop For Blackburn Forward

Blackburn Rovers could be set to lose star forward Junior Hoilett in the new year with Tottenham reportedly lining up a cut price bid.Hoilett is in the last year of his existing contract and Rovers have yet to thrash out a new agreement to extend his stay at Ewood Park.Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is therefore looking to take advantage of the situation by putting in an offer for the talented 21-year-old for less than Blackburn's £15m valuation when the transfer window reopens in January.Newcastle are also tracking the Canadian, who can play on both wings, and if neither club is able to reach an agreement on a fee, Hoilett could still move on in the summer with a tribute ruling on a compensation package with Blackburn are entitled to due to his age. Rovers have already held extensive talks with Hoilett and his representatives over a new deal, but the club's desire to insert a fixed transfer fee has proven a major sticking point to date.
