When Jack Clarke signed for Tottenham Hotspur on July 2nd, he became the club’s first signing in 517 days (Sky Sports).
He was followed through the door at Hotspur Way by club record signing Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon.
While Spurs had until August 8th to finalise their new arrivals, clubs in Spain and France had until yesterday to finish bolstering their ranks.
In September 2017, 14 Premier League clubs which was said to include Tottenham voted in favour of closing the transfer window before the start of the domestic season (The Guardian).
The decision certainly backfired on Tottenham with the likes of Christian Eriksen’s future in North London having been the subject of intense speculation (The Guardian).
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino even admitted late last month that his squad remained unsettled whilst the European transfer window remained open until September 2nd (Sky Sports).
The Sun are reporting that Tottenham are among the clubs who are in favour of returning the window to align it with that of their European counterparts, which would see the summer transfer window close next year on September 1st.
