Tottenham Hotspur certainly had a busy transfer window this summer to say the least, especially when compared to the summer of 2018.

Spurs managed to bring in Giovani Lo Celso on loan and Jack Clarke, Tanguy Ndombele, and Ryan Sessegnon on permanent deals.

They also waved goodbye to Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Kieran Trippier, Marcus Edwards, and more.

As a result of Daniel Levy’s sales and releases over the summer, Football London report that the club made £51.5m. This comes from both transfer fees and wage savings.

The report claims that Trippier left for £20m, Janssen for £8m, and Nkoudou for £4m, with Josh Onomah going as part of the Sessegnon deal but said to be rated at £5m.

This £37m is added to by the estimated wages saved on the likes of Llorente, Janssen, Nkoudou, Edwards, Trippier, Vorm, Harrison, Ogilvie, Duncan, Freeman, Reynolds, and Tom Glover all leaving (Spotrac).

Football London claim that is a grand total of £51.5m. Not bad for a summer’s work.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Dear God, Seb, you are regurgitating a made up story by Alasdair know nothing Gold. The stated wages are nonsense; the transfer fees are inaccurate. What’s more it’s an utterly pointless article. Every year Clubs sell players; every year their wage bill goes up. Why not analyse the made up report. Is £51.5m accurate (of course not – it’s Alasdaiir Gold). Is it a good transfer window? Well many players were sold for a loss; some went on frees. I challenge you to actually write something of value and, as a tip, Alasdair Gold, knows no more than you and is a complete waste of time. You mention Duncan, Freeman and Reynolds. Who are they? Why does he even bother to include their savings when they are paid around £30,000 a year – a massive saving of £1,750 per month. I despair of this blog pertaining to be about Tottenham

  2. Selling Trippier for £20M and not replacing him, is deemed “not bad for a summers work?”. Success is judged on trophies won not revenue brought in from player sales. Presumably selling Kane and Son would be your definition of a really successful summer? In fact why not sell the lot?!
