Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is supposedly working on an deal which could see them establish a relationship with Standard Liege as a feeder club.
The same investment company that hold a majority stake in Spurs is supposedly holding talks to take over the Belgian outfit, which could change the dynamic at the north London side for years to come.
Liege are on the verge of changing ownership with current chief Bruno Venanzi supposedly ready to sell his shares with English investment group ENIC, which Levy has a significant shareholding in, allegedly close to taking the reins according to a report from Belgium outlet Walfoot.
The latest updates to emerge on a potential partnership between Standard Liege and Tottenham has seen Spurs fans take to Twitter to voice their opinions.
What did these Spurs fans make of the potential club partnership?
“Wish they’d just ship everything over there tbh and leave us alone”
“I really do like this. Will be good for getting youngsters from Belgium as well as loaning out our youth there to get a taste of first team ball in a decent league”
“Kane playing in Belgium next year then”
“Harry Winks to Standard Liege”
“Feeder clubs are going to become very common in the future, not surprised we’re going down this route”
“We are getting all the Belgian ballerssssssss”
“Poor club… R.I.P”
“More money for levy”
“ENIC are a complete joke, watch them buy some fancy players for their new acquisition Standard Liege and then say that’s why they can’t afford to improve Tottenham Hotspur.”
The company, at one time or another, has also been involved in the likes of Rangers, Slavia Prague and FC Basel. Venanzi was allegedly in a London meeting last week to discuss the change of hands, with ENIC remaining as the front-runners.
