Paul Robinson would be “gutted” if Lucas Moura leaves Tottenham in the summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one heaped praise on the 29-year-old who is an “eight of 10 every week.”

“I’d understand if he wants to leave to play more regularly though. When you look at the three Spurs have got, it will be difficult to break into that.
“They’d have to sign a replacement if they let Lucas and [Steven] Bergwijn leave though.”
