Report: Tottenham set to rebuild via promoting youth rather than January spending

Tottenham Hotspur have fallen flat so far this season after recording just four wins from fourteen games so far across all competitions.

These results include defeats to Liverpool, Brighton, Leicester, and Newcastle in the Premier League, as well as a 7-2 thrashing from Bayern Munich, and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester United.

However, The Athletic have now reported that the Spurs rebuild will centre more around promoting youth than January spending.

The report states that the likes of Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott, and Japhet Tanganga will be brought into the first-team set-up properly over the next year while the club look to phase out some senior players.

For example, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Christian Eriksen are all set to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season unless they agree to a new deal in North London.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I am all for those three being promoted as soon as possible, but it has to be academy youth AND transfer window spending, not one or the other. Promoting young players just restarts the first chapter of Poch’s reign, when Spurs need to push on for titles now.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We don’t have the quality needed to improve the team, some of them are great prospects but not yet ready. It’s just Levy all over again unwilling to back the manager in the transfer market. Levy and Lewis, if you won’t spend on the squad then sell the club to people that will, you should get a decent price for the club now. Winning nothing for 12 years doing it your way hasn’t worked, it’s time someone else had a go.
