Fernando Llorente’s profile on first team squad page of the official Tottenham Hotspur website has been removed.

While there has been no official confirmation from the club, it appears that the striker could have now departed the North London side.

Llorente’s contract expired at the end of June and there has been no news on whether he has been released or offered a new deal.

The former Juventus striker helped to play a pivotal part in Tottenham’s European campaign that saw them progress to the final of the Champions League after he scored crucial goals against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City in the knockout stages.

His second half presence against Ajax in the second leg of the semi final also proved to be instrumental with his physical presence allowing for the likes of Lucas Moura to create space behind the defence which led to his memorable hat-trick in Amsterdam.

While the Spaniard found first team opportunities limited while Harry Kane was fit, the vast majority of Spurs fans will not forget his efforts in what was a season we will always remember.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. If correct, its sad that no message and/or thanks have yet been on left on the website as although I think it is time to replace him with someone younger, he did a tremendous job with holding up the ball, scoring the odd goal or two when needed and general play, even though we did not really play to his strengths when he was on the pitch. I hope he finds the team of his choice and thank him for the contribution he made to Spurs when on the pitch.

  2. I think Llorente is an enormously gifted striker, just wish we’d had him earlier in his career and for longer. Wish him all the best whereever he ends up playing next
