Tottenham Hotspur have been monitoring the progress of Manchester City midfielder Emyr Huws but are likely to be disappointed if they firm up their interest with an offer, understands. A source close to the north London club told FDN that the 20-year-old has caught the eye of Spurs scouts during his successful loan stint at Championship outfit Birmingham City.

In his five appearances for the Midlands side he has won the man of the match accolade twice, and has also earned his first senior call-up to the Wales squad, replacing injured Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

Huws made his first appearance for Manuel Pellegrini’s first team in the closing stages of last month’s 5-0 FA Cup victory over Blackburn Rovers, prior to his loan move to Birmingham.
The positive impact he has made at St Andrew’s has not gone unnoticed at the Etihad Stadium, and any offers for his services in the summer are likely to be rejected according to a source close to the Blues. City are keen to introduce more of their talented youngsters into the senior set-up next term and Huws is set to remain in Manchester for the start of the new season.
