£500K Due To Spurs Following Promotion

£500K Due To Spurs Following Promotion

Tottenham Hotspur have received an extra £500,000 due to Dean Marney's promotion with Hull City.

Following the success at Wembley, Hull City have had to pay an extra £500,000 to the half a million already paid for the former Spurs player following promotion. The total transfer fee now makes Dean Marney the second highest in the club's history, following the capture of Caleb Folan for £1.3 million.

Marney made eight appearances for Tottenham in the Premier League, scoring two goals, and the midfielder is relishing the chance to return to White Hart Lane after leaving them as a youngster.

The central midfielder excelled during Hull's promotion campaign, missing only five games which included both play-off semi final's following a knee injury. Unfortunately, Marney only made an appearance at Wembley as a 90th minute substitute, and then missed some of the celebrations having been randomly chosen for a drugs test after the final whistle.

Marney is expected to be a vital part of Phil Brown's squad next season as Hull look to maintain their Premier League status.

Could I be randomly selected to have some drugs tested on me?

Sorry, just don't think he's good enough. Hope I'm proved wrong.
