Tottenham Hotspur have submitted their updated squad to the Premier League for the remainder of the season following the January transfer window and the squad features just one change from the list which the club started the campaign with.

All twenty Premier League clubs are required to submit their new list after the conclusion of the January transfer window.

Tottenham did not bring in any new faces last month but a total of 13 players did leave the club, with 10 of those being loaned out.

However, many of those were Under-21 players, who need not be named in the 25-man squad since Premier League allows clubs to use an unlimited number of players under the age of 21 (Football.London).

The only change to Tottenham’s squad from the start of the season was the omission of Paulo Gazzaniga, who completed a loan move to Elche for the rest of the season.

Only a total of 24 players made the cut since the club did not make any new signings.

According to Football.London, here is the squad that Tottenham named for the rest of the season:

Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli, Carlos Vinicius, Serge Aurier, Gareth Bale, Steven Bergwijn, Ben Davies, Eric Dier, Matt Doherty, Joe Hart. Son Heung-min, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Hugo Lloris, Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez, Moussa Sissoko, Alfie Whiteman and Harry Winks.

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that we left one spot open suggests that the club were hoping to potentially make one signing in January. It is also important to note that Spurs do not have an issue fulfilling the homegrown criteria as far as the Premier League is concerned as both Ben Davies and Joe Rodon are considered homegrown while the pair have to be listed as foreign-trained in European competitions.

Thus, we are already over the allowed limit as far as the number of foreign-trained players allowed in the Europa League, which is why Mourinho had to leave Rodon out of the squad. That could have possibly been a reason why we were hesitant to bring players in without moving some on.
