Tottenham preparing nine-player clearout as Ange Postecoglou wields the axe

Tottenham preparing nine-player clearout as Ange Postecoglou wields the axe

Ange Postecoglou was confirmed as Tottenham Hotspur’s new Head Coach on Tuesday

Tottenham Hotspur could sell nine first-team players as Ange Postecoglou looks to build his own squad.

After weeks of speculation, former Celtic boss Postecoglou was confirmed as Spurs’ new Head Coach on Tuesday.

Club chairman Daniel Levy said: “Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play. He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy - everything that is important to our Club.

“We are excited to have Ange join us as we prepare for the season ahead.”

Ahead of the 23/24 campaign, Spurs are planning a mass exodus with at least nine players facing the axe.

According to The Telegraph, Spurs are believed to be happy to let the likes of Hugo Lloris, Ivan Perisic, Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon go.

The North London club are also said to be willing to listen to offers for defensive duo Ben Davies and Eric Dier.

In addition, it has been claimed that Spurs will also try to offload Giovani Lo Celso, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks during the summer transfer window.

Whilst the future of midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is yet to be decided after the Frenchman made 30 Serie A appearances for Napoli.

The Telegraph stated that Postecoglou may give Ndombele a chance to impress in pre-season before making a decision on whether to sell or not.

However, the main talking point will be whether Spurs can keep hold of talisman Harry Kane, who has been strongly linked with a transfer away.


The likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid are set to fight for Kane’s signature.

Levy will be hoping Postecoglou is the man to finally end Spurs’ long trophy draught, with their last triumph coming in the 2008 League Cup.

The Australian has won 14 trophies so far in his managerial career, having taken charge of Celtic, Yokohama Marinos, the Australian national team, Brisbane Roar and South Melbourne.
