TOTTENHAM won’t be signing Lewes ace Ollie Tanner during the January transfer window.
Tanner was linked with a move to Spurs this month after impressing the club while training with their Under-23 side.
But the Isthmian League Premier Division side announced that the North Londoners couldn’t agree personal terms with the winger.
This came after Lewes and Tottenham reached a £100,000 deal in principle involving the 19-year-old prospect.
A club statement read: “Lewes Football Club would like to confirm that whilst the club and a Premier League club agreed a deal in principle for the transfer of Ollie Tanner, Ollie and the Premier Club were not ultimately able to agree personal terms and he remains a Lewes FC player.
“Tanner missed today’s game against AFC Hornchurch due to an injury sustained midweek and we look forward to welcoming him back to the side as soon as he has recovered.”
This comes after old tweets were unearthed of Tanner, who was previously on the books of North London rivals Arsenal, making fun of Tottenham and their star striker Harry Kane in 2018.
One post was a GIF of Spongebob Squarepants drooling in response to a clip of Kane being interviewed.

Other tweets also resurfaced of the forward cheering on the Gunners and making fun of Tottenham.
Tanner wrote in one of them: “Shock Tottenham charge. Imagine paying £405 to walk out next to someone who will spit all over you.”
That led to a furious response from Tottenham fans, some of which urged the club not to sign the youngster.
Spurs manager Antonio Conte has yet to see a new signing joining his ranks after missing out on Wolves star Adama Traore, who rejoined Barcelona, and falling behind in the chase for Porto’s Luis Diaz, who is negotiating with Liverpool.
