Spurs look to bring in £6 million United defender

Tottenham are today considering making a £6 million bid for West Ham United defender Anton Ferdinand. The England under-21 international has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the past after falling out of favour at Upton Park. (The Times)

Ferdinand, 23, has spent over five years with West Ham making over 150 appearances in the process. The often troubled centre-back is believed to be interested in a move away from West Ham and Juande Ramos is keen to bring him to Spurs as he looks to build a squad capable of challenging for a top 4 place next season.

I personally don't see why people think Ferdinand is such a good player. He has been decent at West Ham but nothing special if you ask me and I feel Spurs would be better off spending their money on someone else like Richard Dunne for example.
