Football League World have revealed that MK Dons have a sell-on clause on any fee raised by Tottenham for Dele Alli amidst reports linking the midfielder with an exit from the North London club.

Dele has made just two starts in the Premier League since Antonio Conte arrived at Spurs at the start of November. 

According to The Telegraph, Conte considers the 25-year-old to be surplus to requirements and has given the green light for the player to be sold this month.

Newcastle and Everton have both been credited with an interest in signing the Tottenham man this window (ChronicleLive).

Football League World have now revealed that Spurs would only be able to hang on to 80 per cent of the fee from Alli’s sale, with MK Dons inserting a 20 per cent sell-on clause when they sold the midfielder to the Lilywhites in 2015.

The report adds that the League One club do not expect a financial boost from Alli’s sale this month as the Tottenham man is likely to leave on loan rather than a permanent transfer.

Spurs Web Opinion

One would have thought that there would be clubs interested in signing Dele permanently given that the 25-year-old’s wages are not as high as that of the likes of Ndombele. 

Perhaps Spurs are thinking that they would be able to get a bigger fee for the England international in the summer if he impresses out on loan in the second half of the campaign.
