Transfer business this window has gone well with Mauricio Pochettino not wanting to hang on to play he doesn't feel are quite good enough for where we want to be or who don't have the potential to turn themselves into the level of player we want.

he made it clear last ummer that the squad was too large, he wanted to work with a snmaller squad who could cover each others positions, thus we now have players like Eric Dier and Dele Alli who can play in several positions, indeed they both played in two fifferent positions against Liverpool.

We have players coming through whom he wants to develop in the Cup games so Josh Onomah and Harry Winks are both expected to play when we start our League Cup campaign. That would have left Ryan Masion struggling for a starting berth even in the Cups.

Player Sales

Nacer Chadli - £13-million transfer to WBA (Premier League)
Nabil Bentaleb - £850,000 loan fee + potential £17-million transfer to Schalke (Germany)
Alex Pritchard - £8-million transfer to Norwich City (Championship)
DeAndre Yedlin - £5-million transfer fee to Newcastle United (Championship)
Federico Fazio - £1.02-million loan fee + potential £3.4-million transfer fee to Roma (Italy)
Ryan Mason - £13-million transfer to Hull City (Premier League)
Emmanuel Sonupe - Free transfer to Northampton Town (League One)
Dominic Ball - Undisclosed fee transfer to Rotherham United (Championship)

Total - £40.87-million + potential £20.40-million next summer

On top of that we are expecting the departure of Clinton Njie on loan + £6-million transfer fee to Marseille taking the total next summer to £26.4-million.

There is also the Dominic Ball fee and the Clinton Njie loan fee (assuming that goes through) which will take us past £42-million this summer.

Ryan Mason asked for £40,000-a-week from Hull City so one assumes that was his wages at Spurs. I'd have expected both Federico Fazio and Nacer Chadli to be on the same wage, which would equate to £120,000-a-week wage saving.

Dominic Ball and Emmanuel Sonupe would not have been on significant wages as neither has broken into the first team. I would guess DeAndre Yedlin and Alex Pritchard were on the £10,000-a-week step whhile Nabil Bentaleb negotiated a wage increase so a conservative estimate of £45,000-a-week would see a conservative total wage saving of £187,000-a-week.

Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama at £40,000-a-week still leaves us with around £100,000 taken off our wage bill. Add in Georges-Kevin N'Koudou who again will be on a relatively low wage, perhaps £20,000-a-week maximum and we still have money available for a fresh player of quality without damaging the wage bill.

Let's see what today brings us.
