Well hello Dolly.
The Daily Star is jackanape central, eh? Jermaine J**** being lined up to replace Joseph Barton at Queens Park Rangers. And to get suspicious readers into the zone, they’ve even run the piece accompanied by a snap of the Tottingham dynamo sporting a moustache.

Jan Vertonghen’s getting as restless over his transfer as most Spurs fans.
“I’ve said repeatedly that Tottenham are my first choice, but the talks haven’t progressed,” said centre-back Vertonghen, 25.

They remain a possibility if my Spurs move falls through, as Ajax are asking €15m for me.”
