Place Yer Bets.....

Spurs are rumoured to be in talks with giants Mansion in relation to a new shirt deal that might be worth anywhere up to £34mill.
The Gibraltar-based company were keen to secure a sponsorship deal with a prominent Premiership club after their deal with Manchester United fell through, although you may flick through the archived stories on HH to establish possible reasons as to why the Glaser Boys opted to swerve Mansion...
Talks are said to be 'at an advanced stage and a four-year deal is expected to be agreed this week' at a press conference. We'll just wait and see.
The News of the World quotes a club insider as saying, "We have been in talks with Mansion since the deal with Manchester United collapsed."



UDATE!

MANSION will partner Tottenham Hotspur across a wide range of commercial activities including the extension and expansion of the Club's brand into key territories across Asia and other important international markets, the development of an international supporters' club to support the brand, significant support for the Club's work with adults in the community in the UK and overseas, a co-branded internet gaming site with shared revenues, and other special commercial projects that may be of mutual interest and benefit to both the Club and MANSION.
Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur, said: "We are delighted to have MANSION as our new partner. The progress the Club has made both on and off the pitch in recent years meant that we were able to consider a number of potential sponsorship deals. MANSION represented the best partnership opportunity for Spurs, in commercial terms and, just as importantly, in respect of the excellent synergy between the two organisations. We share similar ambitions to grow and extend our respective brands in many of the world's key and developing economies and we have already discussed ideas on how we might achieve this by working together. We are excited about working with MANSION and keen to accelerate the international development of our Club"

32 mil over 4 seasons = 8 mil a season. seems a lot to me, esp as no champions league. still, if they want to push their money our way and improve jolly's spending power, so be it !!
lets hope it's spent wisely if there's any truth in it.

Mansion would certainly be a forward thinking sponsor - they strike me as a company that wouldn't have have a problem understanding the class of money that is required at this level and 'getting on with it'.
