They only finished 19th last season but after Sven Goran-Eriksson’s shock arrival at Notts County, the Pies are among the favourites for League Two glory – will the Swede make a difference.

Tottenham have confirmed their interest in signing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, after the striker turned down the chance of a move to Stuttgart.

The Dutch international is surplus to requirements at Real Madrid following their recent spending spree.

Stuttgart agreed a deal with Real Madrid worth around £15million, but now Huntelaar is heading back to Spain after rejecting the offer from the Bundesliga side.

Horst Heldt, Stuttgart general manager, said on the club’s website: “We were willing to sign Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, because his qualities would be of great benefit for our team.

“But we are not willing to accept Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is putting us off.”

Stuttgart’s failure to complete the deal will alert Spurs, whose manager, Harry Redknapp, confirmed that the 25-year-old was his top striking target.

“The lad is a very good goalscorer and I’m still interested in him,” said Redknapp.

“I know of Stuttgart’s involvement but I’m hoping we will still be able to do something.

“There’s a lot of talk about who I may or may not be after but Huntelaar is the one I like.”
