£15m Tottenham target swaps shirts ... with opposing manager!

White Hart Lane 6

Memphis Depay swapped his shirt with the SNK St Polten head coach after his matchwinning display in the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay in recent weeks - with reports of a £15 million bid emerging last week.

The flying winger had shone at the World Cup this summer and Tottenham were not the only team keen on his services - with Manchester United also mentioned.

However PSV went on to tell Sky Sports that there had been 'no contact whatsoever' from Tottenham and that they 'expect Memphis to stay' at PSV. They also confirmed they had no interest in Nacer Chadli - who had been touted as a potential exchange player in any deal.

This week Depay has been busy. PSV were struggling to outdo Austrian second tier side SNK St Polten in their Europa League qualifying tie on Thursday. But his arrival turned the game - and he even found the back of the net in an eventual 3-2 win.

But after the game there was a rather strange sight. Most players, especially when they are a big name against a team considered minnows, are used to being mobbed for their shirts after the game. Recently Zlatan Ibrahimovic was mobbed by two Red Bull Leipzig players after a pre-season friendly.

But for Depay, it was not an opposing player, but in fact an opposing manager.

SNK temporary gaffer Herbert Gager asked Depay for his shirt after the game, which Depay admitted made him look at Gager as if he was 'crazy'.

But he confirmed that he gave the coach his shirt, because:

"He told me that his son saw me at the World Cup and is a fan of mine."

Tottenham fans will be hoping he will be giving out his Spurs shirt next season.

Should Depay force a move to Spurs?
