Tottenham Hotspur head of recruitment departs club

Tottenham Hotspurs’ head of recruitment Paul Mitchell has left the club, reports the Guardian.

The 34-year-old followed Pochettino from Southampton, joining in November 2012, but will leave Spurs less than two years since moving to London.

Mitchell still has a strong relationship with Pochettino, and helped reunite the manager with Victor Wanyama already this summer. It isn’t believed his departure is to do with any issues with the Spurs boss.

However, it seems Mitchell had grown tired of the high pressure role, and was finding life especially difficult under chairman Daniel Levy. The Spurs chief has long been heavily involved in the transfer activity at the club, and it is suggested that this became too much of an issue for Mitchell.

Spurs have signed 8 players this summer, whilst some of Mitchell’s highlights include Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld. Although Clinton N’Jie and Son Heung-min have not been as successful. The 34-year-old will now serve out his notice period for the remainder of the transfer window.
