Transfer merry-go-round in full swing

THE English Premier League transfer merry-go-round is in full swing as the countdown to the closure of the transfer window on August 31.

Tottenham Hotspur jumped on the carousel on Wednesday with three players moving in and out at White Hart Lane.

In came Emmanual Adebayor, who completed his protracted move from Manchester City for $7.55m, while the club accepted a bid of $11.3m for former captain Michael Dawson from Queens Park Rangers.

Cameroon defender Sebastien Bassong has also left, signing for Norwich City for an undisclosed fee.

The Daily Mail in England is also reporting Spurs are close to capturing Brazilian Willian from Ukraine side Shakhtar Donetsk for £30.2million and have reignited interest in another Brazilian, Leandro Damiao, who plays in his home country for Internacional.

And it seems Manchester United could soon be unmasking a new hero as it is reportedly making a $21.6m bid for Mexico's Olympic star Hector Herrera, the man nicknamed Zorro, who has also attracted interest from Liverpool.
