Gedson Fernandes Passes Tottenham Medical as 18-Month Loan Nears Completion

14 January 2020

Despite struggling to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has explained why he is not jealous of the two Premier League giants.

Mourinho has been a dealt a harsh hand with long-term injuries to Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko, while record-signing Tanguy Ndombele has often had niggles.

Spurs had expected Kane to return to full training in April but, asked if there was any update on the timeframe, Mourinho suggested the process may not be as quick as initially hoped.

"Come on, it is what it is", he said. With the rules, even if we get the player you cannot play him in a replay so in this moment I am not interested in Gedson or any other players who could come.

"I was watching Man City (against Aston Villa) and I looked to the bench - (Raheem) Sterling, Bernardo Silva, (Ilkay) Gundogan, (Nicolas) Otamendi".

"Liverpool, you see the team, you see the bench".

"I am waiting for news", Mourinho said on Monday. "This is a different club".

Christian Eriksen's future is also in doubt as the playmaker enters the final months of his contract, chairman Daniel Levy considering selling the Danish global during the winter window with Inter Milan keen on securing a deal to take the 27-year-old to the San Siro this month.

However, Jose Mourinho appears to have leveraged his relationship with his agent Jorge Mendes - who also represents Fernandes - as Sky Sports are one of several outlets claiming the player is set for a move to White Hart Lane.

Mourinho said that injuries and squad deficiencies meant he had no option but to play a full-strength team, other than Toby Alderweireld, against Middlesbrough and start unsettled midfielder Christian Eriksen again.

Signing a striker that has failed to register a single Premier League goal this season is unlikely to inspire supporters ahead of the club's push to finish inside the top four.
