Tottenham Hotspur’s activity in the transfer market is not over yet, as the club has today confirmed the departure of Maksim Paskotsi. The youngster has now joined Grasshopper Club Zurich on a permanent transfer.

Paskotsi joined the Tottenham youth setup back in 2020 after turning out for FC Flora Tallinn back in his native Estonia. He has previously trained with both the youth sides for Kalev and SK Everest.

The defender has made one appearance for the Tottenham senior team, though only for three minutes (Transfermarkt). Paskotsi was a regular for the Spurs development squad and U18 side, but never quite managed to break into the first-team squad.

While he may not have had his breakthrough at club level, Paskotsi does have 18 caps to his name for Estonia, having made his debut at the age of 18 (Transfermarkt).

Paskotsi leaves Spurs on a permanent deal

Now, Paskotsi will get his chance to play regular football, after it was announced the 20-year-old is leaving Spurs to join Grasshopper Club Zurich in Switzerland.

The announcement wishes Paskotsi well for the future and details the player’s previous involvement with the club. There is no information regarding whether a fee was involved in the switch.

Paskotsi was likely behind both new signing Ashley Phillips and Alfie Dorrington when it came to the pathway to the Spurs first team under Ange Postecoglou.

With international aspirations on the line, it is thought the youngster has opted to find more regular first-team football with his new club.

Spurs Web Opinion

Despite his brief involvement with the first team, it was unlikely Maksim Paskotsi was ever going to go on to become a regular starter for Spurs and so this move makes sense for everyone. Hopefully, he can perform well in Switzerland and push on with his career at both club and national level.
