Tottenham are considering Czech Republic striker Matej Vydra, according to the Mirror. The 20-year-old has been in impressive form for Watfrod, scoring 16 goals in 24 Championship appearances. Vydra is on a season's loan from Italian club Udinese.

The Czech's form has attracted the attention of several top flight clubs in England. The striker's agent, Ondrej Chovanec, has now revealed interest from several clubs and claimed his client is in no rush to move.

"At the moment, five Premier League clubs are interested in Matej. [But] we want Matej to stay with Watford at least until the summer. We are not planning any rush move for him," Chovanec said.

The north London club has England international Jermain Defoe as the only senior striker for the moment, following Togo forward Emmanuel Adebayor's departure for the African Cup of Nations. And Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas has already hinted at bringing a third striker to White Hart Lane in January.

Should this report be true, the addition of Vydra to Spurs' first team will give AVB the critical option of being able to rest Defoe for the bigger games and also provide variety going forward.

Meanwhile, talkSport reports the former Chelsea boss is also interested  in a move for Celtic striker Gary Hooper, although he faces competition from Premier League rival Norwich City for the 24-year-old Englishman.

Spurs midfielder Scott Parker was delighted to make his first Premier League start in several months, when he lined-up to face league leaders Manchester United at the Lane. The 32-year-old has only just recovered from a long-term and injury and he feels the break has helped him to re-discover his best form. Parker took Sandro's place in AVB's midfield, after the Brazilian's season-ending injury.

"On a personal level I feel fine, really good. I've had a few games now and I'm raring to go and get right back into it. I think the break has really done me good and I feel fit and sharp. I touch wood when I say it, because football can come around and bite you on the backside, but I feel really good," Parker told the club's Web site.
