Former Tottenham Hotspur player Paul Stewart would be happy if Spurs signed Wolves star Conor Coady this summer.

Football Insider confirmed that Tottenham were in preliminary talks with Wolves about bringing Coady to the Tottenham Hotspur, with the report also including that the north London outfit have set their sights on signing two senior central defenders this summer.

Tottenham have completed the signing of one this window already, with Cristian Romero joining from Atalanta on loan with a buy option of €55m in 2022 [as per Fabrizio Romano].

On the reports linking Spurs with a move for the 6 ft 1 Coady and asked if he would be happy with the signing, Stewart told Football FanCast: “Yeah, I think I would be [happy]. I can’t see that happening and I don’t know why, but Conor Coady is in the England squad, he’s captain at Wolves, [there] probably is a chance that if he came to Spurs with the Harry Kane situation that he could come in as captain.”

Coady featured and led Wolves in all but one of their Premier League fixtures last season, going onto make 40 appearances in all competitions for the Molineux outfit and getting on the scoresheet against Manchester City.

The 28-year-old has until 2025 to run on his Wolves contract and as captain of the team, is an integral part of the club and so you would imagine it would take a sizeable fee to prise him away from Molineux this summer.
