Tottenham Hotspur are just one of the teams which will be handed a huge boost by a change in the laws of the Financial Fair Play rulings. (Football.London)

The change in one of the rules will allow Premier League clubs to spend more freely this summer due to clubs having previously work alongside tight FFP rules.

As of July 1, a rule which kept strict watch over the spending Premier League clubs make towards their player’s wages. (FourFourTwo)

Short Term Cost Control was introduced in 2013 to prevent clubs from going on huge transfer window spending sprees.

The rule meant any club which saw their wage bills increase by over £7m in a 12-month timescale had to have the funding of a commercial deal.

What this does allow for is more freedom for clubs lower in the league, however, for Spurs it provides them greater power in offering new and improved contracts as well as with new signings.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Tottenham in the past 12 months have begun to grow out of their strict wage structure with the growth of the club both on and off the field. Therefore, the dropping of the Short Term Cost Control will allow them more freedom in bringing in major signings whilst the ability to offer players such as Harry Kane new and improved contracts.
