  1. Shame he’s been great for us and a loss if true so the hunt will continue to find a quality replacement won’t it mr levy ?

  2. I think Poch is likely to look closer to home than go for Geoffrey Kondogbia. Considering it will likely cost Spurs upwards of €40m for Kondogbia, Poch will look at Josh Onomah first. Which does make sense. He already knows the system and Poch speaks highly of him. Also, hasn’t Valencia agreed a permanent deal for Kondogbia?

    Of course Spurs are looking at a replacement for Dembélé. He is 30 going 31. He did have surgery in the off-season for his problematic ankle, which in itself took time heal, and to get back to original sharpness and fitness. Re-injuring it again in September didn’t help either. However with injuries such as this, your body compensates so you put further strain on other areas. Much in the same way Danny Rose was out for the length he was. Only to return and have problems with the same knee and the surrounding muscles. As did Lamela, who also had numerous breakdowns on his road to recovery. Spurs do miss his drive in midfield, which also lost Wanyama for the better part of this season. Winks also go injured so when Dembélé did play, he had to adjust for Dier and/or So-so-Sissoko.
