Tottenham Transfers 2014/15 summer overview

As the window has come to a close, I’m going to look how it went for Spurs.

Ins

Davis + Vorm (Siggy + £3.5mil)
Eric Dier (£4mil)
Yedlin (£2.5mil)
Fazio (£8mil)
Stambouli (£4.7mil)

Total spent: £22.7mil

Outs

We made quite a lot of transfers out, I’ll just include the key ones here.

Livermore (£8mil)
Falque (£4mil)
Dawson (£6mil)
Coulilbaly (£1.5mil)
Obika (£200k)
Fryers (£3mil)
Sandro (£10mil)

Total Returned: £32.7mil

Thoughts

We did the right thing selling Livermore and Sandro as neither were really necessary anymore, so to get a total of £18mil for both of them is pretty impressive. We then bought Stambouli for around £4.7mil which is a bargain, it definitely looks like we’ve improved our midfield with those transfers.

Defence wise we did well to offload Dawson and get a good amount of money for him. We also got a decent return on Fryers seeing as he is no longer needed. Dier has already proved to be worth what we paid, and I’m sure Davis will be too. We’ve also got Fazio and Yedlin (he’s been sent back on loan for now) so our defence has definitely been boosted.

Offensively we were finally able to get rid of Obika and we got a decent amount of money for him. We also sold Falque which wasn’t much of a surprise. We did sell Coulilbaly which seemed quite strange after the fact he supposedly had some potential to do well at the club. We didn’t buy any forwards which means if Ade gets injured we only have Soldado, who still doesn’t seem to be able to score, and Kane, who’s isn’t good enough to play at such a high level.

Overall it was a good window, but I think we should’ve got a striker, we will see how it works out without buying one.
