EXCLUSIVE: Tottenham STILL want Rodallega

Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega is wanted by Tottenham and Fulham at the end of the season.
The Colombian was close to agreeing moves with both London clubs this week, with loan switches still being discussed right up to Tuesday night’s deadline.
But the proposals came too late, and left Wigan boss Roberto Martinez with no time to find a replacement.
Wigan knows Rodallega will leave as a free agent, but turned down a £4million bid for him from QPR because they did not want to sell to a survival-fight rival.
Both Spurs and Fulham intend to re-ignite their interest in Rodallega when he becomes a free agent in the summer.
However, the 25-year-old, who is looking for a lucrative £60,000-a-week contract, is clear to speak to foreign clubs and sign a pre-contract between now and the end of the season.
