Tottenham Hotspur have registered record pre-tax profits of £33.4million in the year ending June 30, 2009.

Profits were increased by the sales of the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane which helped contribute to player sales of £56.5million.

“We have made significant progress in delivering on our long-term vision for the club,” chairman Daniel Levy said in a statement on the club’s official website.

“We have always had three key priorities and you will have heard them oft repeated – investment in the first team, a new training centre and an increased capacity state-of the-art new stadium.

“We have assembled what we believe to be one of the most talented squads we have had during our time in the Premier League, the ground is being turned and pitches laid for the new training centre at Bulls Cross in Enfield and we have submitted a planning application for a stunning new stadium on a site next to our existing stadium.”

  1. Hi, I am a simple man with simple pleasures so apologies if this is being really thick but…How come spurs recorded £18 Million of profit from transfers (£56 credit vs £38M debit) but in the report it says…

    …The total cost of all of these players (for financial year) was £119.3m.

    During the financial year the following players for a combined sale price of £72.5m.

    Is it because tottenham have a different financial year to the one that this analysis comes from or have teams who have bought spurs players simply paid up a higher percentage of the fees than spurs have to other clubs?
