A report on the situation at Tottenham Hotspur suggests the club is causing disruption to its summer transfer plans due to the delay in finding a new manager.

Tottenham have been without a permanent manager since the end of March, when Antonio Conte left the club.

His former assistant, Cristian Stellini, lasted just four matches before being sacked. Ryan Mason replaced Stellini as Acting Head Coach until the end of the season.

The instability behind the scenes has done Spurs no favours on the pitch, with results showing little sign of improving under any of the three managers.

After finishing eighth in the Premier League this season, Spurs will be without European football next term for the first time in a decade.

A big rebuild is required at the club over the summer, with many players in the squad expected to move on, and reinforcements desperately needed across the pitch.

However, the fact that Spurs are yet to appoint a new manager is seriously harming those plans, as revealed by a report in the Daily Mail.

The report claims Tottenham are “risking disruption” to their plans for an overhaul during the summer, due to “ongoing uncertainty” and a “prolonged search” for a new head coach.

It is thought Spurs are being “non-commital” when it comes to speaking with prospective transfer targets at present. Apparently, the club is telling potential signings they need to wait for “guidance” from whoever the new manager will be.

According to the report, at least one Premier League player who has been the subject of “long-term interest” from Spurs is now believed to be having doubts about joining the North London club.

The same goes for current Tottenham players who are unsure where their future lies.  All this means Spurs are now at risk of being “left behind” by their rivals this summer.

If I was a player looking at this shambles I wouldn’t be wanting to join Spurs. We need to get the manager sorted ASAP and get moving in the transfer market if we are to stand a chance next year.
