FORMER Ipswich goalkeeper Stephen Bywater looks to be heading back to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur.

He had returned to Derby County during the close season after his loan spell at Town ended.

Rams boss Paul Jewell today confirmed that Bywater will move to White Hart Lane in the next couple of days, subject to a medical.

Jewell said: “Tottenham came in with a bid for Stephen and the player is very keen to go, which is fully understandable.

“I would like to have kept him but it is a move which appeals to him.”
