Spurs beat Everton to Blades duo

Tottenham Hotspur have pipped Everton to the signing of both Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker from Sheffield United.

The two right-backs will join Spurs this month in a deal worth a total of £8m, despite Naughton having been a long-term target for David Moyes.

The two players represent Harry Redknapp's first major success in the transfer market this summer — he is also pursuing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Patrick Vieira — but the deal has left Everton angry.

The club had been given permission by Sheffield United to agree personal terms with Naughton, 20, but that was withdrawn when Spurs offered a lump sum for both players.
