Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest for Tuesday, February 23.
Spurs eye Henderson swoop
Tottenham are poised to rival London neighbours Chelsea for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.
The former Sheffield United loanee, who had spent the last two seasons on loan at Bramall Lane before returning to Old Trafford to fight for his place, is said to be unhappy with his current situation in Manchester.
Henderson is currently playing second fiddle to Spaniard David De Gea and is eager to establish himself as the Red Devils’ first choice shot stopper. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, for now, is standing by the experienced De Gea instead.
Now, with Henderson keen to become United’s No.1, he is frustrated by his lack of opportunities, with him having had to fill the role as United’s cup ‘keeper this season.
With Henderson growing frustrated, Spurs and Chelsea are two clubs being credited with interest in the former Shrewsbury Town ace.

Date set for Spurs to play in front of fans
Fans of Premier League clubs are poised to return to stadiums in limited numbers before the end of the season in May, it was confirmed yesterday.
Boris Johnson, who announced his roadmap out of lockdown on Monday, confirmed that fans can provisionally return from May 17 at the earliest, with the final round of Premier League fixtures due to take place the following weekend.
As part of the plans to ease restrictions on the country due to the Coronavirus pandemic, up to 10,000 supporters or 25 per cent of capacity, whichever is smaller, would be allowed back inside stadiums.
That means fans could be at the King Power Stadium on the final day of the campaign when Spurs face Leicester City.
Nagelsmann open to Premier League switch
RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann may be open to taking a job in the Premier League at the end of this current season, a report by The Telegraph claims.
The German has been heavily linked with a move to England recently, most notably with the Spurs job, and is open to the idea of making the switch.

Jose Mourinho is under enormous pressure in north London at this moment in time and claims have surfaced that Spurs will pinpoint Nagelsmann as their main target if they opt to call time on Mourinho’s tenure.
Nagelsmann is not prepared to leave Leipzig mid-season, meaning it would buy Mourinho some time to turn Spurs’ fortunes around.
For now, it is understood that the Portuguese chief has the full backing of chairman Daniel Levy, despite having watched his side fall to a fifth defeat in their last six league matches on Sunday, losing 2-1 to West Ham United.
