According to the London Evening Standard, Spurs are set to ship out nine players at the end of the season as boss Mauricio Pochettino grabs his chance to sweep the decks at White Hart Lane, which was largely denied him last summer.
This may seem a touch drastic considering the Lilywhites have performed slightly above expectations this term, and even (briefly) looked like mounting a top-four challenge around the turn of the year, but Spurs have gained ground in spite of most of the players in the below graphic, not because of them:
Never impressive since landing in England following a cracking showing for Brazil in the 2013 Confederations Cup, notching just six Premier League goals so far. Needs a new challenge.
The young French holding midfielder has looked useful at times during his first Premier League campaign, and boasts an impressive 70% win ratio from ten games. Deserves another chance.
Undoubtedly talented, but largely unproductive and Spurs have kept just one clean sheet every three top-flight games with the former Fulham man in the side over the past two seasons. Ship him out.
Terrible win record this term, and the Romanian hasn’t been trusted by Pochettino since a too-bad-to-be-true performance in the Lilywhites’ 1-0 home loss to West Brom early in the campaign. A liability.
Bought as a player who could do anything, including score goals and fill in at centre-half, the former Toulouse midfielder hasn’t quite lived up to the billing. Get rid.
Pochettino naming Kaboul captain at the start of the season must rank among the oddest managerial decisions in Premier League history. It will be interesting to see who’ll take him.
In better form for Everton since a January loan move, but showed little at White Hart Lane earlier this season to suggest he can fit into Pochettino’s plan. Could be an ideal makeweight in a deal for Kevin Mirallas.
Tim Sherwood would certainly take the Togolese at Aston Villa, and Spurs are thought to be keeping tabs on Christian Benteke, but Adebayor could yet do a job for the north Londoners and has made the best of his meagre Premier League minutes this season, scoring twice.
Dreadfully disappointing since arriving in England two summers ago, after four 20-plus-goal seasons in Spain. Valencia might take him back.
