Spurs and Villa scouting in Split
Tuesday 10 October 1995
The Spurs manager, Gerry Francis, who has been scouring the Continent for cut-price signings, and Villa's Brian Little have both asked to see a video of Croatia's 1-1 draw with Italy on Sunday night.
Agents working for English clubs were in Split over the weekend discussing possible transfers.They say the Croats, virtual certainties to appear in the English showpiece, are physically and temperamentally suited for the Premiership. Francis, seeking a long-term replacement for the 34-year- old Gary Mabbutt, will consider the merits of two stoppers: Igor Stimac and Dubravko Pavlicic; while Villa are anxious to acquire a foreign sweeper for their "Continental" defensive system and will check out Nikola Jerkan.
