Tottenham Hotspur look set to make wholesale changes to their overseas player scouting network according to reports in The Mail.

The recently-appointed Paul Mitchell, who worked closely with Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton to unearth some highly-rated gems is claimed to be ready to overhaul the way Spurs have been working over the past few years.

Signings such as Roberto Soldado, Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho and Erik Lamela have all found life difficult at Tottenham and were brought in by Franco Baldini.

The Mail claim that Baldini could depart White Hart Lane at the end of the summer transfer window, with Mitchell tasked with looking to bring in talent under the age of 27 who fit in with Pochettino’s high pressing style.

Mitchell is expected to appoint a new scouting network to work within his criteria.
