How Tottenham have made almost £10m in savings since January transfer window

Daniel Levy’s eyes will now be firmly on the summer transfer window as he looks to bring in some new faces for head coach Jose Mourinho.

While the Lilywhites have not sold any players since Christian Eriksen left in January, the club have waved goodbye to three experienced team members since then.

Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm left the club at the end of last month after eight and six years in North London respectively, while Victor Wanyama moved to the MLS in March.

Tottenham did not receive any transfer funds from these moves, with the first two seeing their contracts expire and the latter moving on a free deal.

However, Daniel Levy did manage to free up some funds in terms of weekly wages, reportedly to the tune of around £10m.

Spotrac (via Daily Mirror) reported at the start of the season that Vertonghen was on £5.2m per year, while Wanyama was on £3.38 per year.

Michel Vorm’s wages were not released on this list, although the Daily Star reported in 2017 that he was on around £22,000 per week, making around £1.15m per year.

This all adds up to yearly savings of £9.73m on wages – what Spurs do with those savings remains to be seen.
