Tottenham Hotspur’s head of recruitment Brian Carey has resigned from his position, the club have confirmed.

Carey had held the post at the north London club for the past six years in what was predominantly a behind-the-scenes role, according to Football.London.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy decided to take a different tact with his football operations last summer when he appointed Fabio Paratici as the club’s managing director of football, with director of technical performance Steve Hitchen deciding to resign in early February and had been linked with a move to Everton (The Guardian).

Tottenham are said to be looking to bring in an assistant for Paratici to help the Italian with his duties ahead of what is hoped to be a busy summer transfer window.

The 53-year-old turned out for the likes of Leicester City and Wrexham during his playing career and also had a stint as manager of the Welsh club along with taking up assistant manager posts at Wolves, Doncaster Rovers and Chesterfield.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “We can confirm that Head of Recruitment Brian Carey has decided to leave his role following six years at the Club.

“We would like to thank Brian for his work and wish him well for the future.”

Hopefully, Carey’s departure will further allow Paratici to overhaul the structure of the recruitment side of the club’s operations.

Spurs need to have a big window if they are to satisfy the ambition of Antonio Conte, hopefully with Champions League football secured come the end of the season to be able to attract the highest calibre of player.
