Erik Lamela’s brother tweets a big clue that he is heading to Tottenham
Erik Lamela looks certain to be joining Tottenham after his brother gave an enormous clue as to where the Roma winger would be playing next season.
In a Twitter post that was later deleted, Brian Lamela made it clear that his brother would be heading to “Tott”. Not too many of Lamela’s likely destinations start with those four letters.
He had been asked by a Twitter user: “Do you know what club in England is the likely destination… for your brother?”
Asked by someone else when the deal would be done, he wrote in Spanish: “I said that I can’t speak.. wait to be told the news tomorrow, greetings!”
His bumbling tweets and honesty have already earned Brian Lamela a bit of a cult following among Spurs fans online.
He is the second sibling to break a transfer story this week after Aly Cissokho’s brother.
