Spurs lining up shock £3m bid for John O'Shea

Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a shock cut-price bid for Sunderland central defender John O’Shea.

With captain Michael Dawson free to leave White Hart Lane this summer, Spurs are looking for a new centre back who could slot straight into the first team.

O’Shea only has a year remaining on his Sunderland contract and Tottenham are ready to test the Black Cats’ resolve to keep the 33-year-old with a bid of around £3million.

Sunderland have had a £4m offer for Swansea defender Ashley Williams rejected and must now decide whether to go back with an improved bid.

Despite fighting relegation and falling out with former manager Paolo Di Canio, O’Shea was one of Sunderland’s best players over the second half of last season.

Although he mainly plays in the centre of defence, O’Shea’s versatility is attractive to Tottenham. He can fill in at both left and right full-back, and can also play in midfield.

O’Shea spent 12 years at Manchester United before moving to Sunderland, where he has made 111 appearances.

Other than looking at O’Shea, Tottenham are also interested in taking back Steven Caulker from relegated Cardiff and have considered Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand.

Spurs are prepared to sell striker Roberto Soldado and remain keen on Romelu Lukaku.
