Tottenham Hotspur are expected to come back to Wigan Athletic with an offer former England midfielder Danny Murphy plus cash for Pascal Chimbonda after their earlier offer of £3 million was turned down by Latics manager Paul Jewell.

Murphy has only made 10 appearances for Spurs, 8 of them as a substitute, since he was signed from Charlton Athletic for a rumoured £2 million in the January transfer window. He would make a good replacement for Jimmy Bullard who joined Fulham at the end of the season.

Another possibility would be Spurs keeper Martin Fulop as well as, or instead of, Murphy. Wayne Routledge has also been mentioned as a possible part of a deal.
