Football: Saib finalises pounds 2.5m transfer to Spurs

TOTTENHAM have completed the pounds 2.3m signing of the Algerian international Moussa Saib from Spanish side Valencia.

The deal was originally agreed soon after Christian Gross's arrival as Spurs coach last year, but was delayed until yesterday, when the player finalised personal terms.

The midfielder should make his debut in Sunday's game with Bolton at White Hart Lane, a crucial match for both teams as they struggle to avoid relegation.

Raddy Antic, the Atletico Madrid coach, has denied that he is to make a bid for Savo Milosevic, the transfer-listed Aston Villa striker. The former Luton player dismissed as "rubbish" reports that Milosevic had agreed a pre-contract deal to join the Spanish side in the summer.

Antic, who has been in England to watch Villa before next week's Uefa Cup quarter-final first-leg meeting, said: "Milosevic is an interesting kind of player with a lot of fine skills for a big player, but as things stand at the moment I don't think we have any interest in him."

Uwe Rosler has pledged his immediate future to Manchester City following Joe Royle's arrival at Maine Road.

The German striker, whose two goals at Swindon on Saturday helped give the new manager his first win in charge, has been in dispute over his contract for some time.

His previous manager, Frank Clark, who was sacked by City last week, had virtually given up on the striker, had refused to improve the offer of a new deal, and was expecting him to walk away from the club under the Bosman ruling when his contract runs out in the summer.

But Rosler said yesterday: "At the moment I only have one thing on my mind, and that is the need to stay up. I want to concentrate on this totally, and when we are in safe waters, then I will then think about my future."
