FOUR Spurs stars have been targeted by Sunderland manager Roy Keane in a combined £20million deal.

Steed Malbranaque, Pascal Chimbonda, Teemu Tainio and Younes Kabul - all now surplus to requirements under Juande Ramos at the Lane - are wanted by Keane to bolster his Stadium of Light outfit.

Keane is a long-term admirer of former Fulham favourite Malbranque while Chimbonda, who joined from Wigan two years ago, has attracted interest from Newcastle.

Tainio and Kaboul, who were together at Auxerre, have been fringe players for the past two years.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are poised to challenge Manchester United for Dimitar Berbatov by making a £24million move. United have bid £22m for the Bulgarian but Spurs are holding out for more.
