Following Tottenham’s formal confirmation on Friday that Ivan Perisic has left the team to join Hajduk Split, it seems like another player wants out in order to focus on joining a particular team.


Spurs offload excess players in a series of loan agreements

So far, the club has seen a lot of activity during the January transfer window, led by chief football officer Scott Munn, technical director Johan Lange, and club chairman Daniel Levy.

In addition to the recent additions of defender Radu Dragusin and midfielder Timo Werner, Spurs have also been able to loan out a number of undesired players.


Eric Dier, the center back, is one of them even though his contract is almost up, having first joined Bayern Munich on a six-month loan agreement.


The reason for this is probably so Bayern can sign him permanently for nothing when he becomes a free agent in the summer, but Spurs still benefit from the deal as Dier’s £85,000 weekly salary is gone.


In addition to the Englishman, the following players have left on loan: Ivan Perisic, Djed Spence, Sergio Reguilon, Japhet Tanganga, and young Ashley Phillips.

Tottenham made the announcement of the latter man’s return to his native Croatia with Hajduk Split yesterday, even though the 34-year-old is still rehabilitating from a complicated ACL injury.



Given the uncertainties surrounding the futures of midfielders Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Bryan Gil, potential departures after Perisic are most definitely not ruled out.


Spurs may decide to sell Hojbjerg in January in order to make room for a new midfield addition. Postecoglou is particularly keen to pursue Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.


Under Postecoglou, Gil isn’t yet proving to be a reliable starter, which has led to rumors that he might return to Spain.


Gil is “looking forward” to rejoining Sevilla in La Liga.

Gil is “looking forward” to playing in La Liga again and would be thrilled to rejoin his old team, Sevilla, according to Vamos Mi Sevilla.com.


Levy has reportedly reduced his asking price to approximately £6-7 million, according to the website, and it is thought that Sevilla is “within reach” of the 22-year-old. This is in the midst of rumors from Spain (via Daily Express) that Gil is keen to work with the Spurs chairman to secure a permanent relocation.

Sevilla isn’t the only top-tier Spanish team interested in signing him, though; Real Sociedad is rumored to be one of them as well.


In spite of playing little for the Spurs, Gil has been hailed as a bright prospect in recent years; ESPN’s David Cartlidge described him as “very exciting”.
