One Spurs star is staying but another wants to leave

According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham keeper Paul Robinson has handed in a transfer request after losing his first team place to Radek Cerny.

The England international was dropped for Tottenham's 1-1 draw away at Arsenal two weeks ago and has not played since for the London club leading to intense speculation about his future.

Many clubs including Middlesbrough and Man City have been linked with the 28-year old in the past few days but it is unclear yet wheter or not Spurs boss Juande Ramos will accept the request.

Meanwhile, Spurs striker Jermain Defoe is staying at the club after talking with Ramos. The England striker was recently told he could leave if he wanted to but after captaining the side on Saturday against Sunderland it appears as though Ramos wants to keep him.

Portsmouth, Man City, Newcastle and Aston Villa were all said to be interested in the 25-year old but it appears as though now there hopes of signing the former West Ham star have been all but ended.
