Robinson 'hugely surprised' by Tottenham swoop for Ramsdale amid update today
Paul Robinson is “hugely surprised” to hear Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one insisted the 23-year-old is “not good enough” to play for the Lilywhites.
According to the Daily Mail (10 June), Tottenham are plotting a move for the English shot-stopper this summer.
Earlier today, Ramsdale was called into Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England squad following an injury to Manchester United’s Dean Henderson.
An £18.5million signing from Bournemouth in 2020, Ramsdale has three years remaining on his contract at Bramall Lane.
Football Insider revealed on 17th May that Spurs’ current number one Huge Lloris is set to remain at Spurs next season despite entering the final year of his contract next month.

Robinson urged his former club to turn their attentions to Burnley’s Nick Pope or West Brom’s Sam Johnstone if they’re in the market for a goalkeeper.
“I am hugely surprised to hear him linked with Spurs because he is not good enough,” he told Football Insider.
“He got relegated with Bournemouth and he got relegated with Sheffield United and a while a lot of goals were not directly his fault, he could have effected them in some way. I don’t think he is at the level that others are.
“He has been pulled into the England squad now because Dean Henderson has had a hip injury. I think he’s very fortunate to be in the squad.

“If Spurs were looking to replace Hugo Lloris then Nick Pope and Sam Johnstone should be top of the list.
“Aaron Ramsdale still has a lot to prove for me. Sheffield United paid over the odds to sign him. The jury is out with me over him. He has a lot still to prove in my eyes.”
