Dele Alli told to move house as his 'time is up' at Tottenham after source's training ground reveal - pundit
Dele Alli has a persistent attitude problem and it is time for him to quit Tottenham for good.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the mercurial 25-year-old attacking midfielder.
This site revealed on 28 September that Spurs are likely to wait until next summer before they try and sell Alli.
The Londoners hope his form and transfer value can improve over the course of the season but have lost hope of recouping a big fee in January.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the 37-cap England international is difficult to manage and an inconsistent trainer.
Addressing his exile under previous Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, Alli told Goal back in July that “the only person I blame is myself”.

Alli has had far more football under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo and has featured 10 times in all competitions so far in 2021-22.
But Kenny maintains that the playmaker would be better off in pastures new.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “He even came out himself and said he’d been difficult under Mourinho.
“Whether he needs to move on and have a fresh start, only he can know. But he needs to sort it out.
“If that’s still the case under a new manager, who he should be trying to impress, then his time’s up.
“Maybe even just living in a fresh area could make a difference. He just seems to have lost that fire that made him so good when he was younger.“
