Capello pulls plug on Zebina spurs move

Tottenham today confirmed their move to bring Juventus defender Jonathan Zebina to White Hart Lane had ended.

Martin Jol was hoping to persuade Zebina to join Spurs in the transfer window but will now look to resurrect the deal in the summer after Fabio Capello decided to keep the Frenchman.

A spokesperson for Spurs confirmed: 'Their coach does not want him to go.'

Capello's decision to hold on to the player was also confirmed by agent Jon Smith of First Artists Corporation.

He said: 'Jonathan Zebina is not going to Tottenham. The Juventus coach changed his mind at the last minute.'

Spurs would not comment on speculation linking them with two more transfer deals - the first involving a possible move for midfielder Hossam Ghaly.

Ghaly was alleged to have been in London for talks with Tottenham amid fresh speculation that a deal to bring the Egyptian to London was almost complete.

The player, an international team-mate of Spurs striker Mido, is with Dutch club Feyenoord whose coach Erwin Koeman has confirmed the Londoners are interested in the player.

Ghaly's arrival would almost certainly be the catalyst for the completion of Michael Brown's move to Fulham but that deal is unlikely to take place ahead of Tuesday's clash between the two Barclays Premiership sides at Craven Cottage.

The only stumbling block to Ghaly's transfer would appear to surround his ability to gain a work permit and a recent groin problem.

Ghaly was left out of Egypt's African Nations Cup squad because of the problem but the 25-year-old will be allowed to leave the Dutch club if it can be overcome.

Meanwhile Spurs are hoping a groin injury to striker Mido will not be serious enough to cause complications on his return to England.

Mido picked up the injury as Egypt made it through to the quarter-finals of the African Nations Cup on Saturday. He limped out of the action after just 23 minutes of Egypt's final group game against Ivory Coast which they won 3-1 to reach the last eight.

Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas, fit again after concussion sustained against Aston Villa in their last Premiership outing, reckons they face a difficult match at Fulham.

The Cottagers have not lost in the league since going down to Manchester United in October.

'They are a very good side - they have shown that throughout the season at home,' said Jenas. 'They have got some good results, so it is going to be tough.

'We're all footballers who love getting on the ball and knocking it around,' he added. 'Many teams in this league aren't prepared to let you do that, if they can get around you and hustle you out of your game then that is what they are going to do.

'Fulham like to pass it around. It should make it a very interesting battle.'
