Carr on his way out of Spurs?


Stephen Carr is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur after a dispute on a pre-season trip to Spain, according to a report in the English press this morning.

The highly-rated Republic of Ireland defender, who missed the World Cup because of a persistent knee injury, is said to have fallen out with a member of the Spurs coaching staff.

The disagreement at the resort of La Manga, reported in this morning’s Sunday People, has prompted speculation that he is about to exit White Hart Lane, with North London rivals Arsenal touted as a likely destination.

The 26-year-old full back has two years remaining on his current contract and any move would command a transfer fee of at least Stg£5 million.
