Lloyd Kelly talks about his future amid his links with Tottenham
Bournemouth’s versatile left-back/centre-back, Lloyd Kelly, has addressed the swirling speculation surrounding his future, notably the links with Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
The 25-year-old Bristol-born has been magnificent for the Cherries overseeing promotion to the Premier League two seasons ago and staying up last year. Bournemouth once again find themselves in a relegation battle and would ideally want their best talents, including Kelly to help see the season out.
However, there have been plenty of rumours linking Kelly with a move away over the upcoming transfer window, well before the season ends. As earlier mentioned, Tottenham and Liverpool see themselves as suitors.
It was The Standard that first covered the PL duo’s interest in Kelly. He would add a great deal of tactical versatility to both squads.
