Spurs Web Opinion

I believe we are doing the right thing by selling him now than holding on to him until the summer. He has been in poor form this season and won’t be much of a miss for us. Hopefully, his departure will mean that Giovani Lo Celso gets more chances in the second half of the season to show what he can do.
