Would Seedorf do a job?

Clarence Seedorf has played alongside some average players in his career from Johann Vogel at AC Milan to Geremi at Real Madrid. However none come even remotely close to Mike Myers whom he played alongside last night for a Rest of the World XI to raise money for Soccer Aid.

Having been released by AC Milan at the end of last season, Seedorf has refused to hang up his boots just yet and is looking to secure a contract at a club for at least one more year. His performance last night, albeit in a charity match, showed great composure and quality, with age showing little signs of catching up on him.

So with this in mind, would Seedorf make a worthwhile signing for Spurs for a season? Our midfield is packed with quality, and I'm by no means suggesting he should step straight into the first team, but with a lack of winners medals amongst our squad, Seedorf could help to develop a winning mentality and would gain instant respect from all of our players.

At the age of 36, he is younger than Scholes, who was arguably the best player in Premier League for the second half of last season. He has competed in Spain and Italy, so to complete the former top three leagues set may be something that could prove to be a huge selling point.

Back in 2005, we brought Edgar David's to the Lane, a move that many said wouldn't work because of his ageing legs. But for his first season he put in some top class performances, laughing in the face of his critics and nearly got us to the Champions League then. With the extra quality in our squad now, maybe the signing of Seedorf could be the catalyst to push us back.

Maybe I'm just going dewy-eyed over a player who has had his day, but it would be a signing of intent and carries no risk at all. And who wouldn't love to get Seedorf on the back of their Spurs shirt?

On a side note, well done to the academy lads who made it all the way to the final of the Volksbank Cup on Germany, but unfortunately losing out to Club America of Mexico on, would you believe it, penalties.
