Hammers striker Ashton is £15m target for Spurs

Last updated at 10:22 19 May 2008


Dean Ashton will get a

fresh opportunity to leave his

bitter-sweet FA Cup final

memories behind when he is

expected to move across London

to join Tottenham this summer.

The 24-year-old striker, valued

at about £15 million, scored for

West Ham in the last final to be

played in Cardiff but still finished on the losing

side when Liverpool won a dramatic penalty

shoot-out after Steven Gerrard's last-gasp equaliser.

Now Ashton tops the Spurs shopping

list as they look for a replacement for Real

Madrid-bound Dimitar Berbatov.

Meanwhile, the north London club are hoping

to end their long search for a goalkeeper by

signing former Real Madrid youth team product

Diego Lopez from Villarreal.
