The sum is believed to be somewhere around £5m for 26 year-old Naughton, who has struggled to force his way into Tottenham's first team under various managers since joining in 2009.

Faulty generator caused Spurs blackout

The Turkish energy minister Taner Yildiz has stepped in to explain why the lights went out twice during Tottenham's Europa League game with Besiktas.

Yildiz blamed the stadium authorities for the power failure at the Ataturk ground for 'not making the proper checks' after there was a fault found in the stadium's generator.

The players were plunged into darkness once in the first half, causing a delay of 16 minutes, and again during stoppage time.

“We monitored the situation from our end and double checked the electric flow to the stadium but there was no problem," said Yildiz.

“This was caused by the stadium authorities not making the proper checks to their equipment."

Spurs lost the game 1-0 but still progressed to the next stage of Europa League.
