Luke McGee – GK – Portsmouth
Luke featured a couple times on the bench for us but never appeared outside of preseason. He had a successful loan at Peterborough and was one of their players of the season. They couldn’t afford to bring him back apparently so he moved permanently to Pompey. He had a solid first season where he was the number one but failed to kick on. Pompey fans said he was an ok shotstopper but failed to command his area and didn’t have great distribution. They brought in Craig Macgillivray this year who has had the majority of starts, leaving Luke on the bench.
Will Miller – LW/AM – Burton Albion
Has found his way back into the team recently after being left out for pretty much a whole year. He plays mostly on the left for Burton and has a goal and 2 assists this season in 13 appearances (all coming since the end of October).
He hasn’t played in their run to the Semi Finals of the League Cup but we might see him in the reverse fixture with Burton having nothing to play for. League 1 is probably his level after he failed to get into the team much in the Championship when they were relegated.
Charlie Owens – CB – QPR
Made his first team debut this summer in the League Cup replacing fellow former Spurs player Grant Hall for 25 minutes. Has not featured since, plays for their youth side and is still only 21.
Another Spurs youth player released that summer, Zenon Stylianides, also joined QPR but has not featured for the senior side in any capacity.
Chris Paul – CM – Havant and Waterloo
Moved to QPR but never featured for the senior side, now playing in the 5th tier since December where he has 4 apps
Emmanuel Sonupe – L/RW – Stevenage
Initially moved to Northampton where he only played once off the bench for 18 minutes. Last year moved to Kidderminster Harriers where he also only appeared once in the Cup. Now at Stevenage in League 2 where he has a goal in 26 apps this season (mostly off the bench, only 4 starts)
Charlie Hayford – CM – Hemel Hempsted Town
Moved to Wednesday but never made the senior side, now in the 6th tier at Hemel Hempsted (presumably close to home)
Grant Ward – AM – Ipswich
Scored a hat trick in his debut but only 5 goals since then for the club. Featured fairly regularly for Ipswich in their pushes for promotion. Has played slightly less this season and only contributed a single assist. Tore a knee ligament on boxing day vs QPR and is done for the season.
Dominic Ball – DM/CB – Aberdeen (On Loan from Rotherham)
Joined Rotherham from us where he appeared for them ~13 times before going to Peterborough on loan in January. Last season he had a full season on loan at Aberdeen in Scotland, he didn’t feature much but they liked him enough to bring him back again on another loan this season.
He’s basically their Eric Dier, plays CB and DM interchangeably and even some RB. The season he left many were listing him as the backup to Dier before we brought Wanyama in.
His contract with Rotherham is up this season and I imagine he will look for a contract in Scotland as that is where he has spent the majority of his senior career (he had a decent loan to Rangers when they were in the Scottish Championship in his final year under contract with us)
Nathan Oduwa – L/RW – Free Agent
Nathan caught the eye of a bunch of people on this sub after some preseason appearances where he looked tricky and interesting on the wing. He never came anywhere near the first team and left to Slovenia in January 2017.
He struggled with a knee issue that spring but played fairly regularly the following season until March when he stopped getting picked. He moved to Boldklub in Denmark this fall where he played 3 times for their reserves and 3 short apps of the bench for the senior side before terminating his contract in December.
Seemed like tricks was all he ever had and people figure that out quick in senior football.
Daniel Akindayini – CF – HSV Hoek
Moved to Brighton’s youth side from Tottenham where he was immediately loaned to non-league Margate. Transferred permanently to Margate (unknown if he played as Transfrmarkt doesn’t track that information), then the following season joined Norwegian 2nd Division side Gjovik.
This season moved to a Dutch 4th tier club. Is listed as having a ruptured Achilles currently but I have no information about how many times or if he has ever appeared at the senior level for any club.
Jordan Archer – GK – Millwall
Has been the Millwall number 1 ever since his move. They earned promotion back to the Championship and have even been close and pushing from promotion to the Prem. Jordan briefly lost his #1 spot this fall but has been back between the sticks since the end of November.
Very solid GK and still only 25 so we may see him at a Premier League club some day. Has also recently been pushing for the Scotland senior #1 spot as most of their GKs are aging.
Cristian Ceballos – AM/F – Sint Truidense
After briefly appearing in preseason for Spurs (and some thinking he might get a chance like Ryan Mason did) he was sold to Charlton where he only featured a few times. Went on loan to Belgian side Sint Truidense where he moved permanently last year. Missed the entire season last year through a torn adductor in his hip but is back this year(although he has only played 5 mins off the bench total since November)
Bongani Khumalo – CB – SuperSport United
Somehow stayed on the books at Tottenham for his entire 5 year contract despite never appearing ever (although he did make the bench a couple times early on). Is now back in South Africa at the club he joined us from, spent 2 seasons at Bidvest Wits as well in between 2 spells at SuperSport since his departure.
Was briefly the captain of the South African National Team but at 32 seems to have fallen out of the National side.
Aaron McEneff – CM – Shamrock Rovers
Moved back to Ireland and joined Derry City where he made over 100 apps and scored 26 goals from Midfield. Just recently joined Shamrock Rovers and their season kicks off in February.
Alex McQueen – RB/RM – Dagenham and Redbridge
Left Spurs and joined Carlisle where he appeared relatively frequently. Was released by Carlisle before they re-signed him again the following December.
He went without a club for over a year before briefly joining VPS in Finland. Now at Dag and Red in the 5th tier where he seems to have re-invented himself as a Right Midfielder and has 5 goals from the wing this year. Made his national team debut for Grenada in September.
Jonathan Miles – GK – Ebbsfleet United
Moved to Ebbsfleet from Spurs where he has never appeared but is still their backup/3rd GK.
Tomislav Gomelt – CM – Dinamo Bukarest
What a strange career he has had. This year is the first time he has appeared for his parent club in his entire career. We sold him to Bari who immediately loaned him 2 seasons in a row to Cluj in Romania. They sold him to Rijeka in his home country of Croatia who he never appeared for and was loaned to Lorca in spain.
Then finally he joined Bukurest back in Romania where he has had a solid run in the first team in CM. Still only 24 could end up in plenty more countries before his career is over.
Grant Hall – CB – QPR
Started off very strong at QPR and was their supporters player of the year in his first season. Was a fixture at the back for them until last year when he did his knee. Has basically missed 2 full seasons and has only had a couple cup starts and some 1-2 minute cameos in the league this year. His contract is up this summer so will be interesting to see where his career takes him next and if the bad knee injury will be too much to overcome.
Ismail Azzaoui – R/LW – Wolfsburg
Moved to Wolfsburg due to not getting his chances in England, made 2 brief sub appearances in the Bundesliga before playing exclusively with the reserves. Went on loan last year to Willem II in the Netherlands where he featured regularly and chipped in with a couple goals. Picked up a knee injury and despite playing the last few games of the season for the Dutch side is back at his parent club where he has yet to appear the past few years.
Kenny McEvoy – R/LW – Free Agent
Once scored against Victor Valdes. He might be out of football, he might be playing non-league it’s hard to tell. He went to York City in Jan 2016 when he left us but they were relegated. Joined a non-league side for a few months before going back to Ireland with Waterford. His Wikipedia says he came back to England and re-joined South Normanton but Transfermarkt says he didn’t so who knows. Is worth an instagram follow just for pics of his hot wife.
Shaq Coulthirst – CF – Barnet
Always made me laugh when people listed Shaq as a possible backup/3rd ST for us when he always looked like a pylon out there to me. He moved to Peterborough from us where he appeared a decent amount before moving to Barnet in League 2. They got relegated last season but Shaq stayed around and just recently scored the winning penalty against Sheffield United to get them to 4th round of the FA Cup for the first time ever.
Milos Veljkovic – CB/DM – Werder Bremen
Probably one of the biggest “what if” departures from Tottenham since Poch arrived. Poch never seemed to fancy him and he moved to Werder Bremen where at 23 he is a nailed on starter in defense for them and also has broken into the Serbian national team. Initially started as a DM but has been pretty much a full time CB the past few seasons. Maybe he wouldn’t have been good enough in England but he has certainly carved out a solid career in Germany.
