8 linked with Tottenham exit.

Posted on September 01, 2014 by Guest Writer

It looks as though Tottenham are about to ruthlessly reduce their player staff with Pochettino having no more time remaining in which to assess the squad at his disposal, with little more than a dozen hours of the window remaining at least 8 of our senior players are linked with exits. Some are obvious exits as they have failed to make their mark, others might be looking for the exit door having failed to establish themselves in the team and want more time on the pitch.

Zeki Fryers and Lewis Holtby would seem to be the first to depart, Fryers to Palace having failed to impress and Holtby to seek more playing time at Hamburg. It is always disappointing to see young players with ambition and high hopes fail but they must be commended for seeking playing time over money. their sales will bring in a further £10m to add to the transfer fund available.

Harry Redknapp it seems is trying to replicate his days as head coach at Tottenham, he has already been reunited with Caulker and is apparently keen on Aaron Lennon, Sandro, Andros Townsend and even Jermain Defoe. Townsend is quite probably still a target for Southampton despite the protestations of Pochettino in recent days though it will surely come with a proviso that it will be part of a deal to acquire one of their own stars.

By now we know that Benoit Assou-Ekotto will not be included in the playing squad and has been offered on a free, only a year remaining on his contract, if he cannot find a new employer will probably have his contract paid up.

A couple of late links to a couple of our big buys from last season who are probably on the wishlist of others due to the possible departure of their own stars, Zenit and Juventus still considering Paulinho, the latter if Vidal does move on, while Soldado is being considered as a replacement for Falcao who seems set to go somewhere today.

If even the majority of these players leave us today surely a big name or two will arrive in addition to the signing of Stambouli which has almost been completed.

Interestingly it was reported earlier that Tottenham have done no business on deadline day for 2 years, on that occasion Hugo Lloris and Clint Dempsey arrived at the last minute. We shall have our man at the gate ready to report any news later this afternoon.
