With Tottenham Hotspur finally completing their long term captures of Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso late on after the summer transfer window deadline had passed at 5pm yesterday evening, one thing that stood out to many fans was how we’d actually structured Lo Celso’s arrival.

He comes in initially on a loan spell, with it believed we then have an optional buy clause worth £55million on the deal, and that could ultimately rise further with add-ons.

Whichever way you look at it, we paid significantly less than the press had stated all summer long, but the loan nature also allows us to see whether he can adapt to the Premier League before we hand over the real cash, and following the outlay on Tanguy Ndombele, it also pushes that potential expenditure into our next set of accounts.

Plenty of fans seemed pleased with that, especially with ongoing doubts about Christian Eriksen’s future.

With plenty of criticism levelled at Chairman Daniel Levy (often unjustified), it’s nice to see some praise go in his direction.

  • You lot are all blind if you think levy is great .
    Leaves every thing to the last minute
    No time for new players to gel
    Should of pushed to get rid of players who don’t want to be there eriksen etc
    And if we don’t make top 4 this season le celso is off….. Not that great

  • Eriksen should have gone with Bruno Fenandes wearing the white of spurs then Levy would have done well, Levy again came close to screwing it all up, will wait to see if Poch remains after this mediocre transfer window, poor if you consider CL and sponsorship money.
