Tottenham and West Ham have been linked with a January move for homesick Everton striker Andy Johnson.
The London giants could also be joined by Arsenal in a three-way battle for the England international who is reported to be failing to settle on Merseyside.
The former Crystal Palace and Birmingham forward loves playing for the Toffees but a source told the Sunday newspapers: "From a footballing perspective AJ's content but he's never happy too far from his roots.
"It was different at Birmingham when he could get down south fairly regularly - but he is also aware that he owes Everton a lot."
Spurs have been interested in Johnson in the past but look unlikely to make a move if they are true to their word and jermain Defoe has a future at White Hart Lane.
Not this again...
