Before we post this story from The Metro, we just have to say that we think this is complete tosh…… Seems to link nicely to the stories that Osman hasn’t signed a new contract yet……….
Tottenham are ready to approach Everton over a summer deal for contract rebel Leon Osman.
The 31-year-old, who has two years left on his current contract, has broken off talks with the Toffees over an extension and Spurs are reportedly ready to pounce.
Andre Villas-Boas is known to be desperate to add a controlling central midfielder to his squad at the end of the season, having missed out on Joao Moutinho, and Osman is a top priority.
He has a proven record for Everton in the Premier League, with his performances helping him scoop two England caps in recent months, but it is thought he is ready for a change of scenery.

Osman has been offered fresh terms and a one-year extension to replace his current deal at Goodison Park, but with doubts over David Moyes’ future and time running out to play in the Champions League, he is looking at a move away.
Spurs are thought to be willing to hand in a £6million offer at the end of the season, while they could also throw fringe players into a deal as part of a clear-out if the club reach the Champions League
