Tottenham fans have once again torn the club apart on social media after they failed to agree personal terms with non-Championship player Ollie Tanner.
Spurs have recently entered into talks with Tanner, who plies his trade with Premier League Isthmian Division club Lewes, after reaching an agreement in principle to sign him.
The 19-year-old winger has also attracted interest from Southampton, Cardiff and Luton, while Brighton have reportedly seen a bid rejected.

Now Spurs have failed in their pursuit of Tanner, with Lewes announcing talks between their youngster and the top-flight side have failed on personal terms.
Their statement read: “Lewes Football Club would like to confirm that although the club and a Premier League club have agreed to an agreement in principle for the transfer of Ollie Tanner, Ollie and the Premier Club have ultimately been unable to agree on personal terms and he remains a Lewes FC Player.’
While that doesn’t worry Antonio Conte as much, Tanner’s rebuff is the latest low point in what has been a miserable January window for Spurs; having also seen Adama Traore and Luis Diaz snub them for Barcelona and Liverpool respectively.
And after the news, Spurs fans took to Twitter to blast the club over their humiliating transfer deals.
