The 27-year-old, who opted not to bother marking either Laurent Robert or Olivier Bernard last weekend, is out of contract in 18 months time and has made it very clear that he is prepared to leave Tottenham if they can’t match his salary expectations.
Puzzlingly, he also gave some clues as to his true identity.
"Sol Campbell isn't Steve Carr at the end of the day,” said the Irishman.
“But I've only a year and a half left and I've got to keep my options open.
"We've had a very small talk with my agent and the club, that's about it. There's been no major talks about a new deal.
"If the deal's right for me, I will stay. It's a big contract for me so I'll have to see how it goes with the club and if they're willing to give me exactly what I want."
For those of you in any doubt, Carr is the little white guy and Campbell is the one with the medals.
