‘Sort of wheeling and dealing’ – David Ornstein delivers transfer verdict from inside Spurs


Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy are doing a great job, and a lot of people on the inside were rather surprised by that.

Speaking on The Athletic’s YouTube channel, David Ornstein discussed Spurs’ transfer policy.

Spurs signed Djed Spence, and this transfer was the sixth in this window. It cannot be said that Tottenham had no problem with player transfers, with the purchase of Bastoni being stopped as the Italian expressed the firm desire to stay at Inter.

However, the Spurs, instead of negotiating, bargaining, and so on, moved on to new faces. David Ornstein admires Tottenham’s transfer strategy this year.

One of the most sort of notable features of this transfer window for Tottenham is that they’ve got business done early. It was pointed out to me by someone from inside the club as being a real surprise.

Because we’ve seen so many transfer windows go down to deadline day with Tottenham sort of wheeling and dealing to get in what they need or what they want. Sometimes succeeding, sometimes not.
