Spring might be the season for cleaning, but when it comes to getting the seemingly endless amount of deadwood that Tottenham Hotspur possess off the books, summer is most definitely the time for selling.
In past seasons, the Lilywhites have usually been able to count upon the likes of Portsmouth and Sunderland to buy their Premier League outcasts in bulk, but given the troubles they’ve had in getting some of these men off the payroll, it seems the era of wholesaling your deadwood is over.
With chairman Daniel Levy overseeing a tightly run financial ship at Spurs, as ever, the onus is going to be on freeing up some space on their wage bill before a series of new recruits come in. And far from shifting the odd £40,000 here and there, we’ve selected ten players Spurs could part with to give themselves some considerable room for manoeuvre within their books.
So from the veterans, to the youth products and to the players that have yet to even play a single league game for the club, click below to flick through the gallery and tell us what you think about the ten bits of deadwood Spurs should kick out of the club this summer.
