Tottenham are actively pursuing a loan deal for Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck but have ended their interest in Barcelona midfielder Alex Song, according to Sky sources.

Now Available

Sky Sports reported earlier on Thursday that Spurs were discussing potential loans for Cameroon international Song, 26, and England's Welbeck, 23, after both players were told they were no longer wanted at their respective clubs.

While they do not want Song, Tottenham have now offered to take Welbeck on loan but would not be interested in signing him on a permanent deal this summer.

Welbeck is also wanted by Newcastle, Sunderland and Hull City but is believed to be keen on a move to White Hart Lane.

And Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino watched the 26-capped striker feature in United’s humiliating Capital One Cup defeat to MK Dons on Tuesday night.

Sky sources understand that Song, who spent seven years at Tottenham’s arch rivals Arsenal, is keen to move back to the Premier League despite interest from Napoli and Galatasaray.

And with Spurs' only previous competition coming from London rivals West Ham, the Hammers appear in a stronger position to provide the player with a return to England.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will allow left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who spent last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers, to leave the club on a free transfer.
