Scott Brown: Wanted by Spurs?????????????????????

WWW.HIBERNIAN-MAD.CO.UK understands that English Premiership giants, Tottenham Hotspur, have entered the race to sign Hibs and Scotland midfield powerhouse Scott Brown.

It's thought that Spurs would be willing to pay up to £5m for the in demand youngster, who has also been linked to Charlton Athletic, West Brom, Rangers, Celtic, Bolton Wanderers, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Belgian cracks Anderlecht & Russian giants Lokomotiv Moscow.

Brown, 21, recently started his first
Scotland game against Italy in Bari, taking his Scottish caps tally to THREE, after previous subs appearances against Georgia & U.S.A.

The Hibs midfielder received rave reviews after his performance against such players as Rino Gattuso, Andrea Pirlo & Gianluca Zambrotta.

It looks like Hibs will lose the outstanding youngster in the summer, but he will leave with the best wishes of the Easter Road support, after he helped secure our first trophy in 16 years, when the club won the CIS Cup three weeks ago with a 5-1 win over Kilmarnock in the final. Brown could leave as a legend and part of a double cup winning side if we can get past
Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup Semi Final and go on and secure the Scottish Cup as well.
