Spurs move for Phillips in trouble

Thursday, 20 July 2023

Tottenham’s bid for Blackburn Rovers teenage defender Ashley Phillips is in danger of collapsing.

Phillips has had a medical with Spurs but the clubs are well apart on their valuations of the England youth cap.


Interested clubs were told Phillips has a low price clause in his contract but Blackburn are looking for a bigger fee.

Rovers are asking for £5 million plus many extras for Phillips and Tottenham are unlikely to meet that valuation.

There may be a row over the existence of this confidential escape clause and the wording of it. Others sides were told it was £2 million plus extras.
