“He will sell a few players” – Former player predicts exits at Spurs

Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson expects the club to start selling ahead of the new Premier League season.

The North Londoners have already added to their squad this summer following the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton and Joe Hart on a free transfer after his contract at Burnley expired.

Robinson believes that the decision to send Oliver Skipp out on loan is a wise move considering the Spurs academy graduate’s opportunity to play is likely to have been further limited with Hojbjerg now at the club.

The ex-England international claims that Mourinho’s objective is to end Tottenham’s twelve year wait to win a competitive piece of silverware and will make the changes to his squad to help him reach his target.

Spurs are yet to sell a senior player this summer, but did lose the services of Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm after their respective contracts expired at the end of last month.

He told Football Insider when asked about Norwich’s suitability for Skipp: “I think it is a good loan for him.

“He needed a move to a top Championship club or a lower Premier League club and he has got that with Norwich.

“He wasn’t getting enough game time despite being in and around the squad regularly. There is only so long that a player of that age and that quality can stay in and around the squad hoping for his chance.

“Jose has been brought in to win things and he wants to win things immediately. He wants to shake up his pack. He will sell a few players and we have already seen Hojbjerg come in as well so that saw Skipp fall down the pecking order even further.

“A top Championship loan is a very sensible move. Norwich will be challenging at the top and they play football in the right way. A great move for him.”
