Tottenham are investigating comments allegedly made by striker Darren Bent accusing Spurs chairman Daniel Levy of disrupting his move to Sunderland.
A foul-mouthed rant on social network site Twitter purports to have been posted by Bent. One of the tweets said: “Do I wanna go to Hull? No. Do I wanna go to Stoke? No. Do I wanna go to Sunderland? Yes.”
A Spurs spokesman told BBC Sport: “We shall ascertain whether or not it is a genuine posting from Darren.” He added: “If it is, it will be dealt with as an internal matter.”
The Twitter account in question was taken down from the service on Friday morning.
