Weale Could Be Tottenham Target

City keeper Chris Weale’s recent run of great form has put him in the Spurs Spotlight according to several news stories.
Spurs back up keeper Carlo Cudicini fractured both wrists and injured his pelvis in a motorcycle accident in London last week, so Harry Redknapp has drawn up a shortlist of keepers to provide some cover.

David James and Ben Foster, along with Weale, are on on Harry’s list but he would have a job persuading any of them to play No 2 to the erratic Heurelho Gomes.
Although his last outing wasn’t his best, conceding a couple of long range efforts against West Brom, Weale has impressed this season, and has looked comfortable making the step up from Yeovil and Bristol City reserves.
Having used six goalkeepers last season it has been a refreshing change to see the position settled. Hopefully he won’t be tempted away for a life of bench warming…

    People seem to forget that Spurs signed Jimmy Walker as a back up…..

    Have you watched Tottenham at all this season, Gomes hasn’t been erratic at all. He hasn’t had a settled defence in front of him and has single-handedly won us a couple of games.

    walker was signed as cover but has only made the bench on one occasion. harry has been more confident with the two youngsters alnwick and button on the bench.

    pretty sure we will be signing a keeper in january, and would rather it was weale/loach/another young english keeper rather than someone like foster/james that would expect regular game time.
