He will be lining up in a Swansea shirt at White Hart Lane this weekend but Spanish revelation Michu could have been a Tottenham player, according to technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood.

Michu has been one of the players of this season so far, netting 12 goals in the league and bagging a brace against Arsenal at the Emirates.

And Sherwood, who is involved in Tottenham's recruitment process, says Spanish football pundit Gerry Armstrong alerted Spurs' goalkeeping coach Pat Jennings to the Spaniard’s talents in the summer.

Sherwood said: "Gerry told Pat Jennings all about Michu. He really rated him as a player.

"He did very well at Vallecano, but we had other irons in the fire at the time and so decided against a move".

Tottenham’s loss has certainly be the Swans' gain with the 26-year-old midfielder proving to be one of the buys of season as he currently leads the goal scoring charts.
