SAINTS are still waiting on Tottenham to stump up the cash for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The St Mary’s hierarchy have placed a £25million valuation on the midfielder and reports in the national media suggest Spurs believe he’s worth about £15m.

Hojbjerg’s entered the final year of his contract and has made it clear he won’t be sticking around to sign a new one.

Saints have already accepted an offer from Everton and the Daily Echo can also reveal that three European clubs have shown an interest.

It’s believed the clubs from across the continent have submitted bids in the region of what the south coast side are asking for.

However, Hojbjerg has his heart set on a move to Tottenham and is willing to stay patient so that a deal can get done.

Daniel Levy, Tottenham’s chairman, is known for being a tough negotiator and wants to use Kyle Walker-Peters as part of the deal that would bring Saints’ former captain to north London.

But Saints are happy to stand their ground until their valuation is met.

The St Mary’s side are also keen to keep Walker-Peters out of any potential transfer so that the fees don’t become confused.

Saints value the defender at around £15m, the same amount of money that Spurs want to pay for Hojbjerg.
