Levy ready to rip up Tottenham’s transfer policy

Spurs look set to go against tradition and are ready to conduct their transfer business early this summer in a bid to get some pre-World Cup bargains.

The club have a well known history of completing deals late in the window but according to The Express the club are prepared to change tact believing that fees will rise after the tournament in Russia gets underway in mid-June.

Steve Hitchen, the clubs new chief scout, has been working on a list of names for chairman Daniel Levy to progress and manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that early activity is possible.

“We are working with Steve,” he said. “The World Cup only can confirm your idea about a player. It is so dangerous to go and scout players in the World Cup because, if a player is good, how after are you going to sign him?: said Pochettino.

He added:”Sometimes you need to anticipate and say, ‘OK this player can be good for us’ and then he goes to the World Cup. But you need to sign before the tournament starts because he is doing well and then you will have a lot of competition if they are good.”

We make the trip to Brighton tonight with fourth all but guaranteed however Pochettino has already started an inquest on his side’s performance this campaign.

Our poor start to the campaign has been costly and Pochettino wants to avoid that happening again next term when we move in to our new home.

He said: “Sometimes there are many questions about how we reduce the gap and how we compete better or reach the level of Manchester City. It is impossible to answer that,” he said.But it is not impossible [to win the title next season]. We need to start better than this season.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. With season ticket being £63 a game next year, I hope we are going to rip up our transfer policy. Davies and Trippier are really steady defenders, but against the best they aren’t good enough. With Rose and Alderweireld likely to go and Lloris needing serious competition for his place, plus for once, an able deputy for Kane, we need to do a lot of business this summer. Pochettino also needs to give people like Lucas Moura and Kyle Walker-Peters a chance, or we will never know how good they can be.

  2. i am saddened by the alderweireld saga it looks like if we dont play by spurs rules u dont excist anymore.. alderweireld could have saved us alot of times but the club and potchetino thinks otherwise.. wen did we become a dictator club? we pay his wages yet he dont play… is that fair? stop player bullying

  3. Well pigs will fly before our Daniel splashes the cash early.toby , rose Lorente and possibly dembele and please god sissoko look like there days are numbered.big summer ahead we cannot afford to stand still.
