Former Lincoln City Apprentice Scott Loach was the subject of a £2m bid from Tottenham Hotspur yesterday after Asmir Begovic rejected a move to White Hart Lane.

Now at Watford, Loach was offered professional terms at City but instead chose to move to the Hornets at the end of his two-year Apprenticeship.

The youngster has been in excellent form this season and is believed to have caught the eye of several of the country’s top Clubs – with Spurs firming up that interest with a bid believed to be in the region of £2m according to Sky Sports News.

However, the Hornets rejected Spurs’ offer meaning Loach will see out the season at Vicarage Road.

But that is not likely to dampen Spurs’ interest in the England Under-21 international, with Redknapp intent on securing back-up to first choice keeper Heurelho Gomes.

“Possibly, I wouldn’t want to stand here and say no,” he said on Sky Sports News, when asked if there might be signings made on deadline day. ““The chairman Daniel (Levy), I think he quite likes deadline day, I’m sure he’s busy on the phone today.”

“I’ve been looking around for a back-up goalkeeper but at the moment we’re not close to doing anything.”
