Tottenham Hotspur have finally reached an agreement with Benoit Assou-Ekotto to cancel his contract.
The Cameroon international’s contract was due to expire in the summer and has not been a part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans – at least we can now save some wages rather than paying Benny to sit on his arse.
The left-back joined Tottenham from Lens in 2006 and went on to make more than 200 appearances for the club.
However, the 30-year-old has not represented them since May 2013 and, having spent last season on loan at QPR, has been released from his contract at White Hart Lane.
