Tottenham also wanted to make a late move to sign Steed Malbranque from Fulham, although West Ham yesterday agreed to a $4 million fee for the midfielder. Spurs may yet make a late bid. Their hopes of signing Stewart Downing have all but vanished. Malbranque, meanwhile, is said to be keen on a move to White Hart Lane, after being banished by Fulham manager Chris Coleman for refusing to pledge his future to the club.
