Dele Alli set to stay at Tottenham and be denied shock PSG transfer as Mourinho has no intention of letting outcast go

DELE ALLI is set to stay at Tottenham with Jose Mourinho unwilling to let the forward join Paris Saint-Germain.

England star Dele, 24, has been the subject of two loan bids from the Ligue 1 champions.

The second was worth £3.5million and a third attempt to prise him from North London could be incoming today.

But Spurs have no intention of letting him leave – despite falling out of favour with Jose Mourinho.

Dele has played just 65 minutes of Tottenham's first two Premier League games of the season.

He was subbed off at half-time of the 1-0 defeat to Everton and came on with 20 minutes left of the 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United yesterday.

Mourinho labelled Dele a "f***ing lazy guy" in an episode of Amazon's All or Nothing documentary series on the club.

PSG, looking to take advantage, had an initial loan offer of £1.5m rejected by Spurs.

And the second attempt was knocked back too.

The French team could come in again on transfer deadline day but it is believed it won't prove third time lucky.

Dele came off the bench and scored a penalty in their 7-2 win at home to Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League play-off last Thursday.

Mourinho praised Dele’s second-half cameo and his attitude in training.

He said: "I never had a problem with him. Very polite and educated, behaving well and training well.

"If sometimes I want different things from him on the pitch that’s more about his qualities as his player.

"He was on the bench, in a team and squad where it’s going to be difficult to play."

So it seems that there won't be any old boys' reunion for Alli at PSG.

The French champs have been linked with a swoop for former Spurs star Christian Eriksen, who has struggled at Inter Milan.
